What We're All About
Team Awesome is the official charity athletic team for a 501(c)3 non-profit called This Star Won't Go Out. Over the past 5 years, TSWGO has given over $400,000 in grants to families of children with cancer. Team Awesome members seek to help TSWGO continue to grow and be able to provide more aid to children facing the terrible and frightening diagnosis of cancer. Team Awesome welcomes everyone who wants to make a difference-- regardless of their athletic ability.
Meet Esther, the remarkable girl behind This Star Won't Go Out's mission. She is the inspiration for John Green's novel "The Fault in Our Stars". In her 16 years, she taught us that a short life can still be a good life.
Ever wished you could truly make a difference in the world? With TSWGO, everyone can be a superhero! Making a difference is easier than you think, and more rewarding than you can possibly imagine. Come see how you can make a change TODAY.

To honor Esther we have pledged to run, walk, bike, etc. at least 10 miles between August 3-31, to commemorate the 10th Esther Day.
