Team members can be anybody — family, friends, co-workers, or even neighbors. Whether you’re a corporate team or a friends and family team, just be sure to ask everyone you know. Remember team captains must register themselves first and create a team before team members are able to join or register.
What makes up a Team?
Fundraising comes more naturally when you make it personal. If your team is walking for someone living with MS, ask them to share their story when making donation requests. Always follow these stories with statements about how much progress we have made in treating the disease. Another easy way to fundraise is through matching gifts, so be sure to ask anyone who donates to you if their company has a matching gifts program.
Do individuals on a Team have to raise the $1,500 minimum?
Yes, all individuals that are registered as Walkers are required to raise the $1,500 minimum. Crew members are not required to fundraise although it is encouraged. A great way to work as a team is to have team fundraising activities!
