Team FAQs

How do I learn more about forming a Team?
Call our Race headquarters at 760-692-2900 or email them at

Are Breast Cancer Survivors recognized?
Yes, if you register for the Race and tell us you want to be recognized, you will receive a beautiful pink t-shirt and hat courtesy of ZTA Foundation.  You will also be invited for breakfast that day – and will get to bring along one guest.

Do I have to collect pledges in order to join the Race?
It’s not mandatory – but it is strongly encouraged. Your Race Registration fee gets us to the start line – it’s fundraising that helps us win the Race.  Up to 75% of every dollar raised stays here in San Diego County to provide everything from free diagnostic mammograms to mortgage payments and meal delivery.  Even $10 extra – the cost of two lattes at Starbucks — would help us help uninsured women in San Diego County.

Where do I turn in my pledges?
First off, make sure all your pledges are marked with your name and/or your Team Name.  Send them to:  In Motion Events/Race for the Cure, 6116 Innovation Way, Carlsbad, CA, 92009.  Or, bring them on Race Day (Sunday, November 6).  You’ll find a pledge drop-off in the Registration Tent.

What is Sleep in for the Cure?
If you don’t want to get up to join the Race – sleep in!  For $40 we will mail you your participation packet, along with a shirt, door hanger and you can sleep at home while we walk.

How many people does it take to make up a team?
We ask that you have a minimum of 10 people on your team.  But the sky’s the limit!  The bigger the team the better.

Can someone be added via the website to a team after the deadline of Oct 28?
Individuals can still sign up with a team – even on Race Day – and participate with the Team, but they will not be included in the packet pickup.

What is the final date to register?
You can register the day of the Race!  Race day registration opens at 6:30 a.m.  On-line registration closes at midnight on Wednesday, November 2.

Where do I send registration fees or pledges?
Send them to:  In Motion Events/Race for the Cure®, 6116 Innovation Way, Carlsbad, CA, 92009.  Call them at 760-692-2900.

Who do we make the check payable to?
Write checks to:  Susan G. Komen San Diego®, in the memo line — be sure to put the Race individual’s name and/or team!
