Team Teach For America

Team Teach For America is the group of runners (or their non-running friends) who agree to raise at least $150 during their training for the Mississippi River Marathon to directly support expanding educational opportunities for students in Mississippi. Team TFA members create their unique fundraising page on our fundraising site at www.teachforamerica.fundly.com and encourage their social networks to support their efforts financially as they compete with other fundraisers to see who can raise the most. If you are interested in joining Team TFA please click the Team TFA box during registration or email boyce.upholt@teachforamerica.org.

By raising an additional $150 on top of registration fees, Team TFA runners will receive the following benefits:

  • Distinguished Team TFA performance running shirt
  • VIP transportation to the marathon and half marathon start lines
  • Additional Teach For America Swag
  • The Team TFA participant who raises the most money will be awarded an iPad Mini
