Tuesday Team Update – State of the Union edition

Tuesday Team Update

All proceeds from Florence Forth support the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance.  The Team Fundraising Challenge provides a major source of Florence Forth proceeds.  With 6 weeks until Florence forth, here’s your Tuesday Team Update. Find out which teams are leading, which are gaining and gain a tip (or two) to build your team.

On race day, we’ll recognize the leaders in two team categories: Team fundraising and largest team.

With six weeks remaining, this year’s teams have raised more than $10,000.  Four new teams were created last week!  To create a team or support an existing team, visit the Florence Forth team page.  For help creating a team, see an earlier blog post.
