Team Captain Information
What is a Team?
A team is a group of people who register to participate in the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk under a team name. The team concept is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone who has been afflicted with a brain tumor. Team members are encouraged to seek donations from family and friends. All donations received by team members count toward the team total. Team members are usually in touch with a team captain by email and usually meet each other on Walk day to start the walk together.
What is a Team Captain?
A team captain registers the team when signing up to participate in the Walk. It is easy to do and step-by-step instructions are provided online. While registering, the team captain will be prompted to create a personalized team web page link. Your team page enables potential team members and donors to learn more about your team and facilitates donations.
What are a Team Captain's Responsibilities?
A team captain creates the team and customizes the team page. After that, team members can be recruited through emails and networking. A team captain should stay in touch with team members via email to encourage highlights and provide information pertaining to the Walk.
