Team One Step



Team One Step is amazing!!!!!!! Nothing is more rewarding than sending kids with cancer to summer camp! One of my favorite parts of the race was seeing the coaches at mile 24. If it weren't for them, I would never have conquered the next 2 miles with the same energy and excitement I had going. They were so motivating and encouraging. Afterwards, the post party was phenomenal. We were able to hang out with the rest of the team and eat really good food! Thanks 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.
