Whether you have watched a friend recover after enduring a long fight or you have a loved one that lost their battle, cancer has touched many of us. Each year there are a wealth of cancer fundraising events held throughout the world that rally teams together in the fight against cancer. It is common for the teams participating in these fundraising events to develop a team name. Team names can honor cancer survivors, instill motivation and unite a group in spreading awareness and generating funds to fight cancer.
The Name of the Game
Team names often add a lighthearted touch to an otherwise serious situation as a way to offer support for a friend or family member struggling with cancer in an uplifting way. Or sometimes teams pick a name with a more serious tone to show their unrelenting support. We have compiled a list of unique or funny cancer fundraising team names to help kick start a brainstorming session to come up with your own interesting moniker.
1. Too Inspired to Be Tired
This catchy team name packs a punch of motivation. The fight to end cancer requires a never-ending will to succeed and this team name encapsulates the need to keep pushing forward, regardless of how tired you are.
2. Cancer Curesaders
If you are looking for a name that rolls off of the tongue then try alliteration. This team name highlights the purpose of the fundraiser within its name, to find a cure for cancer, while also adding some levity with a pun by changing the word crusaders to curesaders.
3. Save Boob-Bees
Harnessing the power of puns can be smart when brainstorming a team name. Being unique plays on words, puns grab people’s attention for being clever and thoughtful. This pun even calls for a cute image of a bee to complete its light tone.
You can tap into existing popular themes like a famous television show to create a fun cancer fundraising team name. Often television shows can be inspirational points for a team name because they offer costume ideas and sometimes they can even be turned into a pun.
6. Team (person’s name), along with a rhyme
Including the individual that you are supporting in the name itself allows for the team name to become more personal while adding sentimental value, as it is clearly dedicated to one individual and their fight against cancer. A rhyme is a great way to round off the name, as in the example of the Meghan Malley Rally.
