A team is a group of 10 or more participants who register under a common team name and commit to raise funds (minimum of $100) to help end breast cancer forever. This is an opportunity to celebrate life and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer with those closest to you. Families, businesses, and organizations can honor breast cancer survivors or celebrate the lives of lost loved ones. Teams build employee morale, and boost the sense of affiliation and camaraderie for any organization.
Team Captains are responsible for communicating with team members, driving fundraising and picking up and distributing Race materials. Click here for the 2013 Team Captain Kit for more detailed information on how to start a team.

WHY A TEAM?
Komen Detroit’s Team Program offers groups of 10 or more people from all walks of life the opportunity to make a difference in our community. Corporations, community organizations, schools, families and friends - all can take part in the largest grassroots effort in the country in the fight breast cancer.
- Together as a team you can speak with one voice in support of a coworker, mother, friend, sister, whose life has been changed by the words, "You have breast cancer." Worldwide, that happens every 19 seconds! Together as a team you can spread the word about early detection as the key to survival. Detected very early, breast cancer is 98% survivable.
- Together as a team you can raise money to support life saving education, outreach, treatment and research. Since Komen Detroit's first Race in 1992, we have raised and invested $23 million in breast cancer screening and treatment programs in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties, in addition to supporting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Program for breast cancer research and providing a year-round resource to our community through Komen Detroit initiatives.
- And together, you'll have a great time! Wonderful sponsors make our Team Awards Program terrific! Check back for details in our 2013 Team Captain Kit.
