A team is a group of friends, colleagues and/or family members who want to create a cancer-free world. Teams have more fun fundraising and training. Share the amazing journey of participating in the Anti-Cancer Challenge.

  • Anyone can join your team- cyclists, runners, walkers, spinners, volunteers, virtual participants, and kids call all join forces on one team. Team can also include a mixture of family members, friends, coworkers and acquaintances. Let’s beat cancer together- invite everyone you know to join your team!
  • Teams are comprised of two or more people. We encourage you to rally at least 10 membersfor your team.
  • The Anti-Cancer Challenge is not a competition. Cycle for Cures is a ride, not to race. Run for Research is timed, but you are welcome to walk. We encourage your friends to have fun and enjoy the challenge as we beat cancer together. 
  • Teams can be personal with friends and family, or corporate teams with colleagues.


Anyone can start a team, and chances are you know at least one other person who cares about cancer who will join you. We encourage teams to try and recruit at least 10 participants. 

Don’t be shy, get your team started today. All you need is a great team name. If you’re having a hard time thinking of a catchy name, let Google do the work for you. Then get online and register your team. 

Here is what you need to start a team:

  • Find your perfect team name before you register.
  • Determine your team fundraising goal. Teams achieve more than individual riders, set the goal high.
  • Once you complete registration, set up your team fundraising page to share what the team is about. Add a photo and share a story to encourage your team to reach the team fundraising goal.
  • Start recruiting everyone you know!
