Participating in the Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh Affiliate Race for the Cure® with a team multiplies the fun, the laughter and maybe even the tears that you share on Race Day. Rally around someone you know who was just diagnosed, someone who has fought the battle, or someone who may have lost the battle. Together, with your friends, family and co-workers, you make an even greater impact than you could alone.
WHAT IS A TEAM? A team is a group of individuals who want to participate in the Race together (they don’t have to run/walk together). Any business, hospital, family, club, agency, school, church or other community group can form a team. A team can comprise of 10 or more individuals. Teammates can be friends, family members, co-workers, or anyone else who would like to join.
