About Team RTR

Team RTR was launched in December 2011 as a way for Racing To Register to support the mission of the charity: to inspire people to join the National Bone Marrow Registry as well as to educate people on why there is a need to increase the size of the Registry. Team RTR provides support, guidance, tools and resources for the fantastic people who are walking, running, swimming, pedaling, and dancing to raise funds and awareness for people to join the Registry research.

In only its first few months, Team RTR has grown to include triathletes, marathoners, half marathoners, and 10 mile runners. This diverse collection of athletes and change-makers continues to grow and inspire us every day.  There is no limit to the creativity, positive spirit and creativity with which the heroes of Team RTR set about to save the lives of those in need of transplants.

Group Fundraising – Team RTR Teams

Team RTR has launched online tools to support individuals who raise funds together as part of a team. Teams consist of one team leader and as many team members as you would like to include (even just two members can make a team), who are working together toward a common goal. In addition to each team member having access to their own personal fundraising page, teams will have a customizable team page. The team page will include information about the team’s joint fundraising efforts, overall fundraising goal, and links to all team members’ personal pages. All funds raised by individual team members and any donations made to the group will go toward the team’s overall fundraising total.

To create a team or to join a team, go to and click the appropriate tab (“Create a Team” or “Join an Existing Team”). If you have any questions, contact OR call 215.292.5575.
