How to Join

Ready to join Team OneVerse? Great! Here’s how:

You can be a member for any race, any distance. Each team member will raise $1500 for a half or full marathon or Ironman, a little over 55 verses translated for $26 each. ($26 is the average cost to translate one verse of the Bible through OneVerse.) For a 5k or 10k, we will work with team members to set an appropriate goal, usually at least $500.

First Steps
1. Register for your race of choice. You are responsible for the cost of the race. While you can wait for your team membership to be approved, we recommend signing up NOW! As soon as you know you want to participate, sign up. Races usually have a size limit, so register before they sell out.

2. Fill out the Team OneVerse application.We’ll review your information and let you know that you’re approved, get your online donation page set up, and you’ll be ready to go.

3. Start sharing about T1V and the need for translation. We’ll help you with fundraising tools and ideas to reach your goal.

What We Offer You
Team members will be provided with a training program, fund-raising resources, and regular encouragement not only through this blog, but through email communication. We’ll also set up a website for you where people can donate to your fund-raising goal online. In cities where there are multiple team members, we’ll connect you so you can do training runs together if you like.

Your Responsibility
As a team member, you are responsible for meeting your fundraising goal and paying the cost of registration for your race. You will also handle your travel and accommodations for the race weekend. Don’t hesitate to sign up, but remember, races are often non-refundable.

Questions?
If you have any questions, please email Allison at allison_martin (at) tsco (dot) org and ask away.

  1. How many runners do you guys have so far?

    • So far we have 2 confirmed with several seriously interested people making sure they can do the distance. Feel free to encourage others to join!

  2. I have been looking online for a team to race with. I wanted it to be for a good cause and I just came across this page through the passion conference website. I have actually signed up for a half marathon in Nov. and a full marathon in January. My first 2 races ever. Is it to late to sign up for a team if I’ve already registered for the race?

    • It’s definitely not too late to join the team! I’ll send you an email with more info. I’m so glad you found us!

  6. I am a Wycliffe member, and I am currently signed up with Team World vision to do a Standard Distance Triathlon (1.5k swim. 40 k bike. 10 k run) in August. I have another race in September. How do you feel about tri-athletes. What would be the fundraising goal?

    • I’d LOVE to have more triathletes join us. Our first team member was a triathlete doing his first half Ironman, so it would be awesome to have you on board, Ryan. I’ll send you an email to talk more about what it might look like!
