Team Up NOW for More Fun!
Teams are a vital part of our success, accounting for nearly 80% of the support raised for our fundraising events in Michigan. Last year over 840 corporate and friends & family teams registered and raised more than $1.2 million through Walk MS, Bike MS, and Golf MS to help support people living with multiple sclerosis.
Forming a Team
A team consists of four or more people. Teammates can be friends, family members, co-workers or anyone who would like to join your team! Some teams unite to support a loved one 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 your relationships with your team members. Find out about becoming a team captain!
As a part of the MS movement, you and your team are committed to a world free of MS. We're committed to you and the success of your team.
Here are three simple steps to starting a team.
Step 1: Recruit a minimum of four members. Co-workers, friends and family members make an excellent core of teammates. Ask each new team member to recruit another person and your team doubles.
Step 2: Choose a team captain and a team name. A team captain serves as a point of contact with the Society and organizes your team. A team name can be something unique and special to your team such as Leslie's Angels or can be named after a sponsoring corporation such as Team Dow.
Step 3: Set your team fundraising goal and start fundraising. Many teams are surprised at how easy it is to fundraise.
