A great team building opportunity for any size office, business or company! Fundraise around the office in support of childhood cancer families (perhaps there’s one you work with) and come out to celebrate together at the Fun Walk!

TEAM CAPTAINS – when you start your team, we encourage you to recruit at least 10 friends or family members to register and walk with your team! Each walker who raises $100 or more will receive a free Walk T-Shirt on the day of the walk! Remember, the more friends and family members you recruit, the more team members you have fundraising!
