To sign up for Team Lemieux, click the JOIN button at the top of the page and choose to run the Full Marathon, Half Marathon, Relay, 5K or Kid's Marathon.  You'll get your own fundraising page to share with all your amazing family and friends.  Once you reach your fundraising minimum, you will then be officially registered by the Mario Lemieux Foundation for your race.  The deadline to hit your fundraising minimum is April 12, 2017, at 11:59pm ET.  All runners can continue to fundraise through race day on May 7 to win additional prizes.

To make a general donation to Team Lemieux, just click the big DONATE button.

All Team Lemieux runners are eligible for the prize packages listed below based on their fundraising efforts.  It's the least we could do to show our appreciation for their wonderful support!

The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playroom Project, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities.  The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created in 1993 by hockey legend Mario Lemieux. In that year, Mario was enjoying the greatest season of his brilliant career and on pace to establish a new NHL scoring record. Then he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease.

After a successful battle with Hodgkin's, Mario is now 23 years cancer free and his experience led him to focus on ways to assist those not so fortunate. He devotes much of his time to the Foundation raising funds to help reach the ultimate goal: a cure for cancer.
