What do MORE THAN PINK Walk teams do?

Team captains and team members work together to inspire friends and families to support the mission by joining the team and by raising money to help Susan G. Komen® Philadelphia make it possible for more people to survive breast cancer. Because of the stronger focus the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia MORE THAN PINK Walk™ places on fundraising, we encourage team captains to set higher goals than in the past—and we are confident that the excitement and meaning surrounding the MORE THAN PINK Walk will play a major role in teams meeting, or exceeding, their goals.

Come on in! Our $2,500 Team Appreciation Tent debuts on Mother's Day.

We'd love nothing more than to have you and every one of your team members join us in the new Team Appreciation Tent at the MORE THAN PINK Walk on Mother's Day. With the support of our sponsor, ShopRite, we're outfitting this tent for a fabulous celebration of all teams that raise at least $2,500 by May 7—and we do mean celebration! Inside the tent you'll have plenty of opportunities and enjoy special amenities including:

  • Meet-and-greet with 98.1 WOGL's Marilyn Russell (9:30-10:30 a.m.)
  • Festive decor and atmosphere 
  • Tables and chairs so your team can gather and relax after the community walk
  • Pick-me-up treat to help you refuel 
  • Team photo: have your official 2019 team photo taken by a professional volunteer photographer
  • "30-minute thrill": random drawings for fun gifts happen every half-hour from 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
  • Private Port-a-Potty reserved only for tent guests
  • More surprises will await you on Mother's Day

More than just a fun place to gather, the $2,500 Team Appreciation Tent is Komen Philadelphia's way of saying thank you for working hard to save lives... for empowering our mission... for being More Than Pink!

Team captain roles

We encourage team captains to help us educate their team members on all that is new, wonderful and empowering about the MORE THAN PINK Walk, and motivate as many people as possible to embrace the change within the first one to two months of registration opening. For a list of FAQs developed to specifically support team captains in doing this, please email Sue@KomenPhiladelphia.org.

Our role on your team

Your fundraising success translates into our success in saving lives! Therefore, Komen Philadelphia has significantly enhanced our team captain support program, which is now lead by a hands-on committee solely dedicated to helping you have the most successful MORE THAN PINK WALK in terms of your fundraising achievements and the overall experience of your team.

Fundraising recognition

We are excited to inspire you and your team members with a new recognition program for fundraising achievements.
