Participating in Our Colors Run Together with a team multiplies the fun, the laughter, and maybe even the tears you shed 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.
~ Teammates inspire and motivate each other before and during the race.
~ A team can allow you to provide moral support for a friend who is a cancer survivor.
~ By bringing friends and family into your team, you raise more money to assist cancer patients and their families in our community!
