What is the difference between registering as an individual and joining a team?

You can take on the course individually, but you can fundraise as a part of a team- team members do not have to participate in the same event. Anyone can create a team! We have families, friends, schools, clubs, local companies and volunteers that create Run to Victory teams. Run to Victory teams also join together to reach their fundraising goals. Some of our teams even create their own team shirts to run in on race day!

Packet Pick-up and Registration will be held on campus in the Sports & Rec building.

Is fundraising required?

While fundraising is optional, it is encouraged. Go the extra mile and fundraise individually or with a team! After registration, you can customize your own fundraising webpage and spread the word to friends and family. Top individual and team fundraisers will have their names featured on the Fundraiser Portal. The money you raise ensures that Victory Junction is always free of charge for kids and their families.
