This year celebrates the 21st anniversary of Team Spirit Long Beach! As we look to celebrate and continue more than two decades of tradition, community, and support, we do so with a new opportunity to re-envision and further invigorate us all.
In light of the global pandemic, and keeping with state and medical advisories for safe physical distancing, we are excited to announce that this year’s Team Spirit Long Beach Cancer 5K is going virtual.
That’s right, no matter where you are in the world, you can join us to raise funds for cancer support services at the MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute at Long Beach Medical Center.
This year’s event has even more ways to connect and support. Once you register, you will receive an email with downloadable fanfare, like a window poster, commemorative bib, and "Why I Walk" signage. You also will unlock fun videos and access to social media pages to connect with other walkers.
The week of the event, you'll receive access to our "virtual opening ceremonies," including walker welcome, fundraising awards, warm-up and starting line, as well as a custom playlist you can download and listen to while you walk. Awesome tunes and moments of motivation will keep you going until the finish line.
We can’t wait to see how Team Spirit Long Beach grows, how many miles we can walk, how many locations we can represent, and how much support we can raise for cancer patients and their families. Follow along and connect with other walkers on Facebook and Instagram at @LBMedicalCenter #TeamSpirit2020.
