Team One Step

Team One Step is the racing and fundraising team benefiting Children's Oncology Services, Inc.  Team One Step is comprised of individuals who compete in a variety of endurance events -- from 5Ks to marathons to triathlons -- while simultaneously raising funds to send children diagnosed with cancer to camp.  Through the hours that they log in training and the miles that they conquer on race day, members of Team One Step are empowered by the knowledge that their efforts made a difference in the life of a child with cancer.

Registration for our 2015 races will be available in late January. In addition to the list of events below, you are welcome to participate in any event of your choice on behalf of Team One Step (email for more info).
