Additional information

Forming teams

When you form a Parkway Run team, you build energy and passion around your shared cause: raising funds for pediatric cancer care and research. It’s a way for friends and family to show support for a child in their community, and make a real difference in the lives of children with cancer today, tomorrow and for years to come.

Getting started

Visit the Parkway Run registration page, then select a participation type runner or walker. You will then be asked to choose a role. Select “Create a Team” to get started.

If I had a team last year, do I have to start over again?

Yes. Captains should visit the Parkway Run registration page. As a captain, you can use the same team name as last year and register for the event.

Team member registration

Invite team members to register through your participant center or have them go to the Parkway Run registration page and tell them to register under your team name.

Raising funds and sending donations

There are so many ways you can raise money for pediatric cancer research through the Parkway Run & Walk. See our fundraising and social media resources and learn how to secure online and in-person donations through our ways to give.
