Team captains and members, check in here every week—or more—for newly introduced team opportunities and pop-up challenges, team news and reminders on fast-approaching deadlines.

What’s hot in March

Teams only: Two Dietz & Watson Grillebrations are up for grabs.
The Dietz & Watson family is happy to provide one of its famous Grillebration parties for the largest and the highest-fundraising Race teams in 2018. If your team wins, Dietz & Watson will come to you equipped with their grills, hot dogs and all "the fixings.”

New this year: extended team-building deadline.
Now members can join your team up until 10:30 a.m. on Race day, May 13, and be counted as part of your team-participation total for prize qualification. A trophy will be awarded to the largest team in each of different seven categories.

We’re still looking for our First 48 contest winner.
The first team to have 48 members registered online will get free bus transportation for 48 people to and from the Race, courtesy of Yellow Bird (restrictions may apply for pickup/drop-off). A few teams are closing in on 48, but it’s still anyone’s challenge to win.

Our individual fundraising incentive program has great new prizes.

No-Fail Fundraising Tip of the Month

Don’t discount change—it can make a big-time difference to team fundraising! Make it a goal to have every team member collect money for at least four weeks, by putting a jar for spare coins and cash at one or more of the following places. Consider having a team jar-decorating party so members can brainstorm additional collection points.

  • Home: Get children involved in collecting lost change from places like the couch cushions or car, and even donating from their own piggy banks.
  • The office: Place jars at the front desk, in the lunch room and near vending machines.
  • The gym: Ask the owners if you can put a jar at the reception desk, in the locker room and/or near vending machines.
  • Your favorite local business: Request a jar be displayed at the counter.

Not only is collecting spare change an easy and powerful way to increase fundraising, but it also allows more people to get involved and make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer.

This Month’s Team to Beat: Team ROAR

This month we shine the spotlight on Team ROAR, who truly is roaring early on in Race season. Participating in celebration of breast cancer survivor and Team ROAR captain, Johanna Conicello, by March 1 the team had 26 members registered and jumped-started fundraising with a $150 donation. The team epitomizes the power that comes from rallying family and friends to get involved and make an impact. Moreover, each member truly appreciates what our Race fundraising over 28 years means to survivors like Johanna, as well as all women who are or will one day face breast cancer. We thank Team ROAR for their passion and efforts!
