Join Team GSF | Move your body so one day they can too
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 children 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. Over $1 MILLION 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.
By joining "Team GSF" you are agreeing to raise funds for theGSF to help us fulfill our mission and we are here to support you.
- Getting started >> Any race can become an opportunity to change SMA. 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.)
- Join Team GSF in the Santa Barbara Half Marathon in November >> 2016 Team GSF events canceled. We will still have a team of runners in the SB Half, but we are taking a break from hosting the weekend of events this year. This year, sign up through the race HERE and set up fundraising page HERE. | Our annual big fundraiser surrounds the Santa Barbara Half Marathon each November. Weekend event activities include a pre-race dinner on Friday and post-race celebration on Saturday. The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is a designated charity partner of this race.
- Join Team Owen in the New Bedford Half Marathon in March >> Each March in memory of Owen Simmons, Team Owen rallies hundreds of runners to conquer the New Bedford Half Marathon for the SMA cause.
