Can team members be added after the November 15th deadline?
Unfortunately, no. This deadline allows us to have time to
prepare all participant packets by team so that only one person has to pick up
the team packets. However,
individuals can sign up through race day, and still walk with their team
members. Money raised/donations

individual’s name vs. the team name.

We’d love to give back! How do we begin fundraising?
While, fundraising is not required, it is
strongly encouraged. It can be as
simple as rounding up your registration fee, or asking 5 friends to donate
$5.00. Together with your team,
you can make a difference in the lives of local families fighting cancer! 100% of your donations/money raised
stays in Acadiana! Set a team goal, and make a much greater impact than
you could alone.
Team fundraising is easy with online tools. Each person that registers for the race
online will receive their own fundraising website. Teams will also receive an additional team fundraising
page. Donations can be made on
individual or team pages!
Donations can even be made In Memory Of, In Honor Of, or Celebrating a loved one.

provide a 1-week supply of nutritional supplements.
- A$50 donation will provide a wig and hat.
- A$75 donation
will provide certain durable medical equipment (ex. walker, shower chair).
