Start a Team

To get started, follow these simple steps:

  • Step 1 Select the team captain. The captain must register first and create (or re-form) the team before members can join.
  • Step 2 Choose a team name and team division that best describes your team. During registration, designate whether you are a friends and family, corporate or school team.
  • Step 3 Invite friends, coworkers and family to join you!  Email, Facebook or tweet everyone you know and invite them to race and fundraise with you.
  • Step 4 Set up your team web page. After you register, log in to your Fundraising Center to add a photo of your team, set a fundraising goal and tell everyone why you race for the cure.

  • Register for the 2018 Komen Greater St. Louis Race and create your Race Team.
  • Make a self-donation in any denomination to show your commitment.
  • Set a Team Participant & Fundraising goal.
  • Talk to your friends, family, neighbors, colleagues about joining your Team.
  • Display posters around the office, campus, cafeterias, break rooms, gyms, and other high traffic areas. Put your name and contact information on the materials so people can contact you to get involved. Request posters.
  • Use online tools to spread the word about your Race Team. Maximize your Team’s web page by creating a link to your personal social media sites.
  • Set up a Team Facebook page where you can post pictures, generate excitement and spread the word.
  • Send fundraising tips to all your team members and highlight the Team’s top fundraising member.
  • Create fundraising incentives for your Team members encouraging them to meet or exceed their fundraising goals.
  • Remind Team members to log on to their Participant Center to track donations and send thank-you notes.
  • Post a progress chart with your fundraising and recruitment goals in a visible area and update totals regularly.
  • Share the importance of the Komen Greater St. Louis Race with others. It’s not just one day. It’s a fundraising event with a year-round impact. The funds raised through the Race help fund local, lifesaving breast health services for underserved and uninsured individuals in our community, plus cutting-edge, global breast cancer research.

Team Fundraising

Every dollar you raise brings us closer to a future without breast cancer. And when you race with a team, you amplify your impact. How much will your team add to the movement?

Once you have your team in place, there are two ways to raise funds:

  • Each team member asks their friends, family and coworkers to make a donation. Visit our Fundraising 101 page for tips on personal fundraising.
  • Your team works together to host a fundraising event. Download our 101 Fundraising Ideas for fun and easy team fundraising events.
