A team for everyone

We’re apart this year — but more connected than ever. Join up with family, co-workers, and new friends online and on the phone for even more connection and community. There's a reason more than 80% of Obliteriders are part of a team. Whether you participate solo or with a group, Obliteride is an amazing experience of strength. So go ahead, find your dream team this year.

How teams work

Every team has at least one team captain who organizes the group and helps everyone stay on track, fundraise, and meet their goals.

There are different kinds of teams, from employer-sponsored teams to friends and family joining up for a great cause. 

How do I join?

If you’ve been invited to a team, or know the one you’d like to join, select it at registration. If you’d like to join a team but don’t have one in mind, register for Obliteride first. Then, email and we’ll help find a group for you!

Why join a team?

It’s fun! There is no better way to stay motivated, build meaningful relationships, and support a great cause. Plus, you’ll have access to team challenges, team-specific events, a team concierge, and more.

Here’s a look back at our 2019 event. This year, the group hugs can wait — but our amazing connection won’t have to!

Find the right team for you

Event sponsor teams

Who: Colleagues and friends of a company sponsoring Obliteride.

Registration and fundraising: If you are on an event sponsor team, your employer will help coordinate your team’s registration and help with your fundraising goal. (But why not raise even more for lifesaving research?)

Why join: Have fun with your colleagues for a great cause.

Friends and family teams

Who: Any group ready to join together for cures!

Registration and fundraising: You are responsible for your registration fee. Donations made to you apply to your fundraising goal. Donations to the team can be distributed by the team captain(s) at their discretion.

Why join: Find a new way to connect and have fun with friends and family — all while supporting lifesaving research.

Corporate teams

Who: Colleagues and friends of a company supporting the event by contributing to team fundraising efforts.

Registration and fundraising: If you are on a corporate team, your company will donate to your team fundraising goal. Your team captain(s) can distribute those funds at their discretion. You will still be responsible for your registration fee.

Why join: Change the world and have fun with your colleagues!

Fred Hutch and SCCA teams

Who: Staff and researchers at Fred Hutch and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance who want to take a stand for their work, patients, and passion for cures.

Registration and fundraising: The fundraising minimums are gone, so go ahead and challenge yourself to set a big goal to support the community and families you serve. You are responsible for your registration fee.

Why join: Come together with your peers and add some sparkle back to your summer while fueling your work!

My favorite part of Obliteride was bringing a team together and supporting a cause bigger than all of us.
