HOW WILL SPECTATORS KNOW THAT WE ARE A TEAM?
That is up to you. Each team will have a unique flavor and purpose.
How that is displayed is up to each team. Some will choose a “uniform,” others will stick together on the course.
We encourage you to show your spirit.
WE WOULD LIKE TO RAISE ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO DONATE TO JACK’S FUND FOR RESEARCH. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS?
Have your Team Captain set up a Fundraising Page.
