No, teams are not required to enter the event. Most runners and walkers will participate as individuals. However, some find it more fun to participate as a team and to challenge each other and other teams to raise the most money.

When registering, please choose the Military registration type. The first 100 Veterans, Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve Service members to register and confirm their service will have the fundraising requirement waved.

However, if there is a problem with payment for the balance due at the fundraising deadline, your spot will be forfeited and you will not be allowed to participate. All donations are non-refundable.
