Starting or joining a team is the best way to experience The Prouty. Teammates can train together, swap stories, strategize about fundraising and support each other. Most importantly - teams have an even greater impact when they go all in to end cancer.

Team Basics

  • A team has a minimum of two people. There is no maximum.
  • Every Team has a team fundraising goal they can work toward. See Fundraising Tips Here.
  • Team members are also responsible for reaching their own individual fundraising minimums (if applicable).
  • A participant can only register as a member of one team.
  • You do not need to be registered for the same Prouty event to be on the same team.


This year, we will be taking part in Primal's Primal Gives Back program. As part of their ongoing commitment to charitable cycling events and as a Sponsor to THE PROUTY!
