START A TEAM
Forming a team can enhance your experience and multiply your impact in the fight against Alzheimer's. Together, as a team you are a force much greater than what you can accomplish alone. Plus, when you team up, you can earn fun prizes that are only for teams. Team prizes include: a Team Captain's hat, Team Banner, Team Tent and more!
Team Captain - Team captains play an important role in walks, serving as a liaison between their team and the Alzheimer's Association. The Team Captain is responsible for forming a team and recruiting team members, setting fundraising goals and teaching team members how to be a fundraiser. He or she informs team members of important dates and procedures and organizes the team on walk day. Team sizes vary greatly from 4 walkers to 100 walkers, but the average team consists of 10 walkers.
Individual Walker - These are participants who are not on a team and have elected to become a fundraiser on their own.
Walk Day Volunteers - Walk day volunteers help ensure the day runs smoothly for walk participants. This may include working at the walker check-in tent, food tent and/or water stops; assisting with entertainment, photography, T-shirt and sweatshirts distribution; route support, set-up and/or take-down of event day materials; or working as a greeter to welcome walkers or cheer on walkers as they cross the finish line.
