Team Fun

While many teams enjoy training together and riding, running or walking together on the day of the Lobo Cancer Challenge, this is not a requirement. Team members may actually choose different routes, or join the team as a Virtual Challenger. Team members pull together in spirit!

Many teams choose to design custom jerseys or T-shirts or carry a banner as a fun way to show their unity.


Each team member is responsible for their individual suggested minimum commitment.

However, team members can work together on fundraising activities and have fun at the same time!

Team members can help each other towards their individual goals by passing along fundraising ideas, participating in fundraising activities together, and reaching out to support and encourage each other in their efforts.

  • All members of the team are eligible for individual fundraising incentives.
  • The Top Three Fundraising Teams will be recognized during the event weekend, and we’ll highlight the Top Fundraising Teams on our website.

Advantages of Being on a Team

  • Teams are a great way to meet other people with a passion for fighting cancer.
  • Team members can train together, even if you don’t ride the same route.
  • Teams can hold joint events to raise money and have fun together.
  • Teams can learn fundraising tips and strategies from each other.
  • Team members can support each other.
