Create a Team and Support the Memorial 5K

Create a Team and Support the Memorial 5K


One of the most fun ways to get involved in the 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk is by putting together a team.

You can create a corporate team, family team, neighborhood team, friend team, or any other group. Create a team by entering the team name and providing a description when you register. Then invite family, friends and coworkers to register and join your team. Encourage all team members to help raise funds and awareness as a group. Every dollar raised by an individual team member will be reflected in the group fundraising goal.

Set up a fundraising page, which you can email and share with your friends, family and coworkers.

We have created some sample social media messages to get you started:
