How to Create a Team
To create a team after you are already registered as an individual participant, simply call or email The Weekend office at and they will happily do it for you.
Already created a team and want your friends to join? Just tell them to search for your team on our site to join you.
Want to create a new team? Simply select “Create a Team” and register a team captain. The rest of your team members just click “Join a Team” to join!
Important: Each team member must raise his or her own minimum individual fundraising requirement of $2,000 for the 2-day walk or $1,250 for the 1-day walk. A donation can only be attributed to one participant’s donation account. We cannot split donations between team members.
Form a Corporate Team
"Commitment to the communities in which we live and work is an important part of who we are at Johnson & Johnson Inc. We were all inspired by this opportunity to support vital research toward finding a cure for women's cancers. By joining together as Team J&J Inc., we were able to motivate colleagues to donate and participate. We also had the opportunity to make an even greater impact because each dollar raised by the team was matched by Johnson & Johnson Inc. We wanted to make this commitment together and support the...excellent work to provide help and hope to those affected by cancer in our community."
-Vanessa Everett, Communications and Philanthropy Coordinator, Johnson & Johnson Inc., and member of the 2009 Johnson & Johnson Inc. Corporate Team
