Calling All Captains!
Ways to Help You Build a Successful Team
Maybe you are walking for your mother, your aunt, your grandmother, your daughter, your best friend…whatever the reason, you have decided to help make a difference for others fighting this battle as well. Because of you, and about 90 other team captains just like you, we will work to reach our goal to help patients and their families right here in this community.
The dedication of you and your team will help prevent patients from being evicted, and help afford them the opportunity to attend their treatments and pay their living expenses. It all starts with one email, one phone call, one text, one letter asking your friends, family, and co-workers to join you in this fight.
Visit Your Participant Center
Step 1: Visit your participant center to set up your own personal page, along with your team page. Share photos of past events or that special loved one that you wish to honor. Be sure to tell your story so that everyone knows why this is important to you.
Step 2: Start sending emails. Your participant center makes this easy, with template emails that you can send to those within your address book. This will help you recruit new members, encourage those who are signed up, and request donations from others who may not be able to attend.
Step 3: Get social. Share your team page and personal page onto Facebook through your participant center. This is a great way to spread the word about how important this is to you and ask them to join you.
Tell a Friend
Step 4: Tell a Friend. We’ve all heard that expression, “And they tell two friends, then they tell two friends, and so on, and so on.” Well…it really works! So be sure to ask your teammates to ask their friends, family, and co-workers to join your team as well!
Step 5: Be ready to spread the word at all times. You were moved to join this cause for a reason, so be ready! Have registration forms, donation forms, and event information with you at all times. You never know where you might be able to get someone involved…church, clubs, work (if permitted), hairdressers, insurance agents, doctors, dentists, you name it!
