(CNN) – The famed "Ted Sox" - the longtime Senate softball team comprising staffers of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy - is reuniting this weekend to participate in the Race for Hope-DC, the National Brain Tumor Society's 5k walk/run.

According to team captain Co-Captains Kelsey Phipps and Tamar Sekayan, at least 24 former staff, supporters, and friends will reunite for the walk. The team has raised more than $5,000 for the cause in only one week.

The group says this year will be the first since 1967 that the "Ted Sox" will not be part of the Senate Softball league, and members of the team will wear their uniforms for the final time during the National Brain Tumor Society event.

Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat who served 47 years in the Senate, died last August at age 77 after more than a year-long battle with brain cancer.

"People want to get together to help and remember the senator," said Sekayan.

    That Ted Sox team cheated back in 2005 by having batters bat out of order... they are just as corrupt as the Senator himself.

    Ted Kennedy was not a god; he was just a man. A rich man whose main passion in life was his power. Give him up, he's dead.

    Everytime I see Ted's face a certain Simon and Garfunkel song comes to mind, "like a........".
