Teams and Groups

We encourage participants to walk or run as a team or group. Teams are a great way to show your support for a patient or former patient. Many teams wear signature items centered around the team. SouthGroup would like to recognize your team or group on race day. We recommend creating a team name and have each registrant indicate the team on their registration form.
