Team Captains put extra time, talent, resources and heart into the Autoimmune Walk. The Walk is not just an event; it is about linking together family, friends, neighbors and even strangers to give autoimmune diseases a face and a voice. It is about linking patients to the help and support that AARDA provides, linking one patient to another - to someone who can relate to what you are facing, and its about linking the dollars you raise to finding treatments and a cure.
As a team captain, you have three main goals…
- Recruit! Enthusiasm is contagious! Family, friends, co-workers, group members, neighbors, even strangers on the street; anyone can join your team, all you have to do is ASK!
- Fundraise! It takes dollars to fund advocacy, education, treatments and a cure. The support, encouragement, and friendly competition among team members can make it quite easy! Apply these tip, and get started today!
- Have FUN! Build camaraderie and excitement by bringing your team together, either through a party, at a fundraising event, on the phone, via a blog, or on Facebook. Autoimmune disease is serious business, but participating in the Walk can and should be fun!
