After you've completed your registration you will have the option to set up a Group/Team. This is a great way to invite others to join you in celebrating the day. You can share your story, create a unique URL address and invite others to register and join your Group.
CELEBRATE THE DAY!
♦ Run, walk or roll a 5k (3.1 miles) route of your choice near you. Ask your family and friends to join you, and create your own mini-event. You can even run/walk on a treadmill!
