Join Team Speed of Light

Team Speed of Light (TSOL) consists of individuals who enjoy getting outdoors participating in a variety of sporting events to raise money for the Light Foundation. They are tied together by joining TSOL, where you will gain access to:

  • personalized fundraising page and online fundraising dashboard
  • Helpful resources such as email templates, sponsorship materials, and social media tools
  • The support of our Light Foundation staff throughout your fundraising efforts
  • Branded TSOL merchandise, materials, and swag!

Whether you run, participate in triathlons, cycle, or hike, there’s a place for you on Team Speed of Light! There are many ways you can become a TSOL Athlete:


Boston Marathon® – Our charity athletes run the famed Boston Marathon to bring awareness to the work of the Light Foundation. To date, they have raised more than $400,000 for our youth leadership programs.


Create Your Own – Plan your own athletic challenge and create your own fundraiser. It doesn’t have to be running! Set up a Bootcamp, spin group, or anything that gets you going! We can help by providing you with a platform and the tools you need to set up your peer-to-peer fundraiser.


Bring Your Own Bib (BYOB) – You choose the race, register, and choose your own fundraising goal with no minimum. Family and friends want to support you! Let us know, and we will set up a fundraising page for you.
