Need Help w/ a name

We are doing the walk-a-thon again this year for the camp for children w/ autism in our area...this year I want to get a team of friends/family together to walk on Isaiah's behalf. I need a name for our team, when we use to walk for my niece Kelci, we were called the special K team...I need a creative team for us...Right now I just have TEAM ISAIAH...which is fine, if I can't come up w/ anything cute or creative...anyone have any ideas?
