NOW is the time to start planning your team for the 2013 Central Mississippi Susan G Komen Race for the Cure®. Team Captains must register first to create your team. Each team member can then register by clicking "Join a Team" and searching for the Team name. Your team registration fee gets you to the start line, but it's team fundraising that will help find the cures!
Download the Team Captain Toolkit. It contains everything you need to know about starting a team, adding team members, and fundraising as a team!

As the leader of your team, and therefore a leader in the fight to end breast cancer, it’s important for you to know and share with your team members the importance of fundraising. Simply registering and showing up on Race Day will raise awareness, but it's the fundraising dollars that will help find the cures.
Last year, more than 90 teams participated in the fight to end breast cancer. That’s a huge impact! We believe this was directly attributed to the team captains’ leadership and the support of team members to help meet and exceed their fundraising goals. This year, our goal is for Komen Race teams to make an even greater impact. To get there, we are counting on your leadership.
One of the best ways to inspire your team members to fundraise is to lead by example and start fundraising yourself. To begin, view the Fundraising Tips. Once you have started your own personal fundraising effort, and you have some team members on-board, read on for information on setting up your team’s fundraising page as well as some great team fundraising ideas.
The ultimate reward is knowing you've brought our community miles closer to the reality of a world without breast cancer.
But be sure to check out the Team Awards page for more information on how we thank our top performing teams!
