If you’re thinking about participating in this year’s Cleveland Big Wheel Relay – now’s the time to sign up! We only have nine team spots available, out of a total of 32 team spots.
What do you need to do to sign up?
- Register: Click here to register your team and check out all of the creative team names we have signed up to race. If you don’t have all four of your racers selected, or your super creative team name, that’s okay! Just sign up anyway and we can update your information closer to race time. You do not need to donate anything today to reserve your team spot.
- Fundraise: Start planning your team’s fundraising strategy – we’ve had teams throw happy hours at local bars and restaurants, do squares for big sporting events, throw a corn hole or poker tournament at their homes, donate proceeds from a 31 or similar parties, hold a bake sale or sponsor a jeans day at your office – the possibilities are endless! Of course, the easiest way is to share your team page on social media, and ask your friends and family to donate to support you and CHSC. There’s no wrong way to fundraise – just don’t wait too long! Each team must raise a minimum of $400 to participate in our event.
- Create Your Team Costumes: Although not required, costumes make everything more fun. Create a fun team theme and make costumes to match! Click here to scroll through past years’ races photos and check out the costumes teams have had in the past!
- Show Up on June 25 – Ready to Go: Make sure to come to our race on Saturday, June 25 from 2-5 p.m. on W. 11 alongside Lincoln park in Tremont. Be in costume (if you wish), bring some cash for beer, food and other fun activities, and be ready to race! Make sure to invite your friends and families – this is most certainly a fun and exciting spectator event. And there’s no charge for spectators to come hang out and enjoy the day with us! Plus, we will be announcing soon a new activity at this year’s race that will get even more of our spectators involved in the fun … stay tuned!
Bottom line – if you want to race with us, don’t wait! Team spots are filling up fast. Visit http://www.chsc.org/bigwheel to register. If you have any questions at all, please let us know.
For those of you who have already signed up and/or donated – THANK YOU! While you will enjoy a super fun day as a racer or spectator, please know that you will also be contributing to a special organization that helps families right here in our community in BIG ways. Thank you for your support!
Hope to see you on June 25!
