Teaming Up for a World Free of MS!

Team SaviniYou’ll move. You’ll be moved. Joining the movement as a Walk MS team captain with hundreds of thousands of people across the country is an experience like no other. Being on a team is an opportunity to share a great experience with friends, family members or co-workers — a community coming together for a shared common goal.

A team consists of four or more people who join the movement together. It’s easy to form a team —  simply pick a team captain, choose a team name, set a goal, and register for your event. Taking the first step to register as a Walk MS team captain moves us all closer to a cure for multiple sclerosis.

 

Moving Together: 3 Simple Steps to Starting a Team 

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.

1. Recruiting
Team members can be anybody — friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors — and they can all easily choose one of 12 Walk locations and register. Whether you’re a corporate team or a team of family and friends, just be sure to ask everyone you know.

Be a Team Captain!

2. Raising Money
Fundraising comes more naturally when you make it personal. If your team is walking for someone with MS, ask them if they would be willing to tell their story. Just be sure to follow that with a statement about how much progress we’ve made in treating the disease.

Don’t forget to ask everyone who sponsors you if their employer offers matching gifts!

3. Really Having Fun!
Being a team captain is an opportunity to share a great experience with friends, family members or co-workers — a community coming together for a common goal! As a leader, it’s up to you to remind your teammates of why they registered. Walk MS can be more than a fundraising event — it can be a celebration of how far we’ve come together!

Ready, Set, Register!

1.    Pick a team name.
2.    Register your team
3.    Send an email to your friends, family and co-workers asking them to join your team or make a donation! Remember to include a link to your personal web page.
