Join a Sunflower Striders Team!

The Sunflower Striders are calling on all athletes who want to make a difference in the lives of children suffering from cancer. Each race you plan to run, bike, walk or swim can be a fundraising opportunity for you to raise money for children's brain cancer research! Below are two different options so that you can choose what works best for you.

  • Choose to participate in any race, any distance, anywhere, and set your own personal fundraising goals. You can start your own personal fundraising page through our online fundraising platform called Crowdrise. Contact us for help setting up your Crowdrise page.

  • Choose to participate in one of our races in which Prayers From Maria is a Charity Partner.  Prayers From Maria will provide you with the tools you need, including sample letters to send out to friends and family members who will support you in your fundraising efforts. You will be able to start your own personal fundraising page on Crowdrise and send this link out to collect donations. Click here to see our Crowdrise profile.

Please contact us for more information. We are happy to answer any questions or offer any assistance you may need.

If you simply prefer to show your support for our Sunflower Striders Team through a donation, please click here to visit our team fundraising page.
