JOIN THE MOVEMENT AND TEAM UP!
Participating in Walk MS is more fun when you are part of a team! Ask others to join you and enjoy walking together. Share the experience of connecting with friends, family, co-workers, neighbors or anyone that wants to end MS forever.
A team consists of four or more people. Teammates can be friends, family members, coworkers or anyone who would like to join your team! Some teams unite to support loved ones living with MS and other teams unite to support a good cause. The primary focus of a team is to motivate one another with training and fundraising as you build relationships with your team members.
Become a Team Captain
As team captain, your main priority is to keep your teammates informed, motivated and engaged in Walk MS> Many team captains send out emails or newsletters regularly, host or organize team parties and plan team fundraising events. Recuriting new team members is also a very important responsibility of a team captain. We encourage our team captains to set recruitment goals and go for it!
