Thank you for your interest in Team COCI. Team COCI is an easy way for you to get involved and make a difference for the children we serve. Pick one of our events below and click the JOIN TEAM button to set up a fundraising campaign to spread awareness and raise funds for our programs. Walkers are welcome.

It’s not just about you raising funds we want you to let the kids support you to your finish line. When you create your campaign story include a personal goal with your community along with why you are making a difference with COCI. You might be out to win your age group, set a PR, or it might be just crossing the finish line. When you share your goals your community holds you accountable.

It’s fun! If your event is not listed below let us know and we will add it.

You don’t have to run, bike, or tri. Just let us know what you want to do and we will provide you with a page. Be as creative as you can be. Bowling, Lemonade Stand, Golfing, Wedding Registry, are just a few ideas.

Thanks for supporting COCI in making a difference.
