Check out all the event activities happening onsite this year:
Team T-shirt Competition - Show off your artistic skills and enter your best design in our Team T-shirt Contest! A panel will judge all entries and select the top 5 shirts, which will be displayed on Race Day for a public vote. The shirt with the most “votes” ($1 dollar = 1 vote) will be declared the winner. The winning shirt will be announced during the awards ceremony on Race Day!
Team Tailgaters - Looking for a space all to your own on Race Day?? Our top 5 fundraising teams will receive their own “tailgating” tent. We will provide each team with tables, chairs, water, a special breakfast and team name signage. So be sure to start your fundraising early to take advantage of this program!
Best Dressed Team - Make sure to get on all of your best gear, as we will be crowning our best dressed team for the first time this year. Teams interested in being a part of this competition can enter by having their photo taken on Race morning!
Pink My Potty - It is the opportunity to decorate a single portable restroom, as a group or as an individual, for the cost of a mammogram ($125.00)!
