Shamrock Super Teams -- 75 or More
Super means “Massive” in Irish!
SHAMROCK SUPER (MASSIVE) TEAMS
A great fundraising opportunity for teams with 75 or more members! For teams with 75 or more members, Shamrock Run Portland will make a donation in the name of your team, company or organization to the charity of your choice at the rate of $5 per adult team member. For example, a Shamrock Super Team with 120 participants would raise $600 for your non-profit!
CHOOSE YOUR TEAM’S FUNDRAISING RECIPIENT
Creating a Shamrock Super Team is an easy way to support a great cause, and everyone wins. By expanding your team to 75+ Shamrock participants, team members can combine their recruiting and team-building efforts to help raise funds for a worthy group or organization. The recipient can be a high school band, choral group, athletic team or club. Or, maybe your team wants to make a donation to a well-known charity, or even to our primary beneficiary of the Shamrock Run – Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.
TRACK YOUR TEAM’S SIZE ONLINE
The team captain will be notified when the team becomes a Shamrock Super Team. When that occurs, and we will mail a check in the name of your team in mid-April. In the meantime, team captains can track their team’s registration total online via: https://myevents.active.com/ (using their Active.com login email and password).
SUPER (MASSIVE) TEAM REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS JANUARY 31
So, get busy! All team members must be registered for the team by January 31, 2019. To get your Shamrock Super Team started, the team captain will create their team while registering for the Shamrock Run. After the team is created, team captains can log-in to https://myevents.active.com/ (using their Active.com login email and password). Shamrock bib numbers and shirts will be shipped to the Super Team captain to arrive in early March.
All Super Team entries must be submitted online by Jan. 31 to qualify for Shamrock “Super Massive Team” status. If you are a team captain and already have your team started, spread the word and encourage all of your team members to do the same to reach the 75-participant level and be a Shamrock Super Team.
