Since the dawn of time, history has shown that humans enjoy doing things together, as part of a group a team boosts the spirit of a loved one with a brain injury when formed in his or her honor. If you're a business owner, forming a team will increase your company's visibility in the community, promote teamwork, plus boost morale and fitness at the same time. The Walk & Roll for Brain Injury is a fun, low-cost fundraising event for everyone.
It takes one person to inspire hundreds---that's the power behind being a Team Captain. As a Team Captain for the Walk & Roll for Brain Injury, you become a leader in a powerful moment.
TEAMWORK--The More the Merrier!
The Walk for Thought is much more fun with a group of teammates to support and encourage each other along the way. As a team captain or team member, you will notice the camaraderie and development of team pride whether your team is made up of friends and family, co-workers, or members of a community group. If you are walking as part of a corporate team, employees will enjoy a fun social outing while raising much needed funds.
What is a Team? A team consists of a captain and at least 2 additional team members. Team are generally classified as Friends & Family or Corporate (meaning the team represents a company or organization). However, anyone can form a team and we encourage all teams to be inclusive and recruit from many areas. Some of our best teams consist of a mixture of co-workers, family members and friends.
How do I create a team?
Each Walk Team starts by choosing a Captain and a Team name, and setting its Team fund-raising goal. The Captain registers first for the Walk online, as an individual (click on 'Register to Walk' link at main Walk & Roll for Brain Injury webpage). The Captain names the Team, then lets other team members know the Team name & that it's time to register online. Other team members sign on using the 'Join a Team' option on the 'Register to Walk' page (from the pull-down menu there).
