Teams offer great opportunities to build spirit and morale, increase your organization's visibility within the community, gather friends and family together all while having fun!
Online registration to run or walk in our TENTH ANNUAL MILES FOR MYELOMA 5K WALK/RUN is open now.
Day of race Registration and Bib Pick-Up begins on April 28 at 7:00 am and closes at 8:25 am. The Run/Walk will begin at 8:30 am, rain or shine.
If you are a new or returning Team Captain, please contact CarolynMRedmond@gmail.com for your free registration code. Returning Captains will then register using the same login they have used in the past, and will be prompted to restart the team using last year's participants. Remember that teams with 15 or more members will get a tented table with your bibs and shirts available for easy pick-up on event day. Let's get that street fair vibe going!
The Miles for Myeloma 5K is about supporting each other, so why not form a team? Share a fun and active day with friends, family and co-workers. It's a great way to pool your fundraising resources to raise even more money.
It's easy to form a team!
- Pick a team captain and team name.
- Each team member must register individually under the team name.
- Create your team fundraising page and set a fundraising goal.
- Recruit, recruit, recruit. There is no limit to how many team members you can have and no limit to how much money your team can raise! Ask your family, friends and co-workers to join in on the fun.
- E-mail or snail-mail everyone you know and tell your story as to why you are walking/running. Ask for their assistance by making a donation in support of your efforts.
- Team members who register at the Day of Race registration should include their team name on the registration form.
- Make sure all of your supporters write your team name on their checks if you are recruiting pledges via a pledge form or mail. Make checks payable to "International Myeloma Foundation" or "International Myeloma Foundation - For the PMMNG."
- Set a time for your team to meet at the event so you can get a team photo.
- Make it fun by doing team t-shirts, wearing silly hats and making team signs.
If you'd like a sample letter or a poster you can send to friends and family to let them know how to support Miles for Myeloma, please check the attachments at the bottom of this page.
