Velocity teams can be made up of two or more participants of any type – riders of any route distance, Road Crew, or virtual riders. To start or join a team register today. Already registered? Let us know and we'll help you get started or add you to an existing team.
Team fundraising accounts are available to all Velocity teams.
Your team fundraising goal will be the total of the commitments of each individual rider. For example, a team of four people all riding in the 45-mile ride will need to raise at least $3,000 ($750 fundraising minimum x 4 people at this rate).
If a team opts in to team fundraising, each team member will still have their own personal page in addition to the team page to collect donations. Donors may choose to donate to the team or to individuals. Velocity staff will work with team captains one month prior to the event to divide any funds from the team account and place them into individual accounts to ensure team members meet their individual commtiments.

All sponsors are encouraged to create employee teams. Corporate teams can have a big impact on raising funds for cancer research at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. Fundraising and training for Velocity as a team is a fun and meaningful way to boost camaraderie among employees.
Corporate and sponsor teams will assign a team captain to coordinate efforts internally.
Velocity staff will work closely with corporate team captains to grow and support their teams. In addition to the individual coaching each Velocity participant receives, we will work with corporate teams to coordinate internal recruitment events, as well as fundraising events within the company.
Sponsor teams receive complimentary registrations in accordance with their sponsorship level. Each sponsor will receive a special registration code to waive the registration fee for a certain number of employees.
