Creating a 5K team is easy!

When choosing a team name, be creative! Email us to add a team name to the 5K roster and start recruiting. Your teammates simply pick your team name from the drop-down list, and they will be added to your team.

When you form your own team, you are the captain of the team and have an important role. As a team captain you will:

  • Recruit your coworkers, friends, and family members to join your team. (Teams of all sizes are welcome.)
  • Communicate to your team members how to register.
  • All teammates must register for the Nexus 2020.
  • Select a team name and recruit colleagues, classmates or friends to run/walk with you.
  • Each individual teammate must register for the 5K, and select a team name from the drop-down list.
  • Make a team member a Co-captain to help with communication and team duties as necessary.
  • Questions? Review the team captain packet, 5K FAQ or contact Ebony Clay.

Yogis’ and Sleepers’ can join 5K teams too! 

Have more fun supporting the Foundation when you join a team. Teams can include runners/walkers, yogis and Sleep-In fundraiser participants.

Support the Foundation without an early-morning wake-up call? Select the “Sleep-In” option. We won’t enroll you in one of our wellness events – but you can still pick up a T-shirt at the Nexus Meeting registration desk.

Team Awards

You’re encouraged to make your team stand out, so have fun while supporting a great cause. In the spirit of friendly competition, team/individual awards will be given in four categories as follows: 

Team with Most Participants
This will be based on how many members are registered and paid on event day.

Fastest Team & Individual
This will be awarded to the fastest Male, Female, and Coed team competing in the 5K run/walk. The five fastest chip times on your team will be recorded and averaged to determine the team winner. 

Most Team Spirit
This will be awarded based on costumes, team name, T-shirts, props, enthusiasm, etc. Get Creative and Have Fun!

Can’t participate in the 5K run/walk, but want to get involved? No problem!
