Team Sponsors

Are you and a group of friends thinking about organizing a team? Most of our teams have a business sponsor: this sponsor is paying the $500 team registration fee in exchange for recognition in a team name or team t-shirts!

This also allows your team memebers to focus on getting individual sponsors, as this is how we'll raise a good amount to support the Orphan Care program in Malawi.

A great idea... contact us if you have questions or need help!


Hi Teams! The Rules have been posted - see "Forms" on the right sidebar.
