So You Want To Join Team GSF?

Wow! Wow! Wow! We are once again floored by all of YOU! Since we posted this post about Bill, Gwendolyn and I running the Santa Barbara Half Marathon, we have received such an amazing response. And we love it! We love the enthusiasm and we love how many people immediately said, "I'm in, too!" AWESOME!!!

We've also received lots of "How do I join Team GSF?" questions. It is super duper simple. There are a few different ways you can be part of Team GSF:

  • Join a race organized by one of our super supporters -- like the New Bedford Half Marathon on March 17th in Massachusetts. 
  • Organize a team -- like Team Callie did last fall in the North Carolina 5K, Half, and Full Marathon. 

By joining "Team GSF" you are agreeing to raise funds for theGSF to help us fulfill our mission (and you get cool theGSF NEVER GIVE UP. merch for your race too wink). Remember, we are an all-volunteer organization, meaning every dollar you raise goes toward theGSF programs: RESEARCH. AWARENESS. SUPPORT.

Getting started >> Just register for your event, set a fundraising goal, set up your personal fundraising page, and then let your friends and family know what an amazing thing you are doing to help end the #1 genetic killer of young children.

Group Event >> If you have a group of athletes for one specific event, contact us and we will set up your team event fundraising page so each athlete can help you reach your overall team goal. (See example here.) 

Lastly, get in touch with us, let us know about you and your event, and we will send you Team GSF gear: 

$500 raised per person:
theGSF "Never Give Up." Microfiber Race Jersey
theGSF Fundraising Tips

$1,000 or more raised per person:
theGSF "Never Give Up." Microfiber Race Jersey
The 5 Pack: theGSF "Never Give Up." Silicon Wristbands & Info Cards
theGSF 24 oz "Never Give Up. " Water Bottle
theGSF Fundraising Tips

Together we can end SMA – one person, one dollar, one mile at a time. Run, bike, swim, climb… whether this is your first athletic event or you are a seasoned pro, we welcome all athletes to move their bodies so one day those with SMA can too. Any race, game, or event can turn into an opportunity to raise funds for SMA research and programs through theGSF when you join our team. In just two years over $150,000 has been raised by Team GSF athletes and we are continually inspired by those who push their physical strength to the limits to help conquer a disease that robs children of theirs. Team GSF ROCKS!!!!
