Dedication Teams:

Since March4Meg's inception, many groups have come to the event to honor someone who is either fighting Melanoma, a Melanoma survivor, or someone who lost their battle with this horrible disease. In an effort to open our arms to these groups we have developed the Dedication Team program. 

 

If you are a member of one of these teams and are registering as an individual we ask you select what team you are a part of in the "dedication team" black box provided and find your team. If you are an existing team captain or would like to create a team for a loved one, click on the "Dedication Team" black box and select "create new dedication team". If you have issues joining or creating a team, please reach out to march4meg@gmail.com for assistance.

To avoid duplicates, please review the existing teams in the drop down menu to find your team before starting a new team.

 

 

 

In the spirit of Meg's family-first, community-oriented outlook, the March4Meg 5k is designed to cater to all levels of runners and walkers, from the competitive runners setting the pace on our USATF certified course to the dedication teams walking in memory of a loved one or dear friend.
