STARTING A TEAM
Five Reasons to Start a Team
The Challenge Walk is more fun when you are part of a team! As a Team Captain or team member, you will notice the camaraderie and development of team pride. Your team can be comprised of friends and family, co-workers, or members of a community group and can provide a fun, bonding experience that you’ll never forget.
Reason #1: Teamwork: the more, the merrier.
The Challenge Walk is much better with a group of teammates to support and encourage each other along the way. Walkers can challenge each other in their fundraising, enjoy the scenery and rest stops, and make plenty of noise as they triumphantly cross the Finish Line.
Reason #2: Training and fundraising is easier as a team.
Train and raise funds as a team by hosting fundraising events and networking. Corporate teams are a great way for management to demonstrate to their commitment to their employees by starting a Challenge Walk team.
Reason #3: Community involvement builds a strong corporate image.
By getting into the community and working as a team, your company builds a positive corporate image and develops strong relationships in its area of operations. You will build a stronger reputation with employees, clients and investors. You will also build relationships with new audiences that could become potential employees and customers.
Reason #4: Employees benefit through teamwork and team building.
Employees learn to work together in a social setting as they raise funds for the Challenge Walk. They find out how to set goals, develop creative ways to achieve them and put their ideas into action. During the Challenge Walk, they get to see their hard work pay off together as they walk to fight MS.
Reason #5: Participation creates a health-conscious work environment.
Training for and participating in the Challenge Walk provides employees with a challenging, life-changing goal. This event helps everyone get in shape and learn healthy habits, all while benefiting people living with MS.
