Bringing courage, strength, and grit to the fight against cancer

Fundraising made easy for a cause you believe in.

We welcome you to join Team John Wayne as the charity component of any race you do and participate in honor or memory of your family, friends and co-workers who have been affected by cancer. Team John Wayne members receive a personal fundraising webpage, fundraising tips, fun incentives, team camaraderie and more!

Your personal fundraising page

Joining the team is easy. Whether you want to participate in one of our featured events, or for any other event, we'll provide you with a personalized fundraising webpage. On your page, you can tell your own story, upload your own video, and really make the fundraising page your own.


Keep in mind, activating your Team John Wayne page does not register you for a specific race. You will still need to complete your race registration for your chosen event.
