O Captain, my Captain! Being a team captain is easy!
Team captains recruit people to run or walk together, set a team fundraising goal and communicate with their team members. Easy! You can come up with a super cool name for your team and then be at the park a little early to pick up your team sign and meet up with your teammates.
On the registration form, just indicate that you are the team captain, list the team name (if you know it) and then head to the fundraising site to set up a team fundraising page (you will have to set up a personal account first). You can share the Hope Run registration link and team fundraising page link with your social networks to invite people to join you.
Ideally, teams will run/walk together on the 5th and will also fundraise together.
To create a team to run/walk together, REGISTER as a runner or walker and mark the Team Captain box on the registration form. You will also come up with a team name here (this can be changed or added later if you need). Be sure to let your teammates know to enter either your name as team leader or the team name when they register.
To create a fundraising team, CREATE a fundraising account. Then, click the blue button on the right and "Create a new team." You will enter your team name and create the team fundraising page. You can now share the link to your team's fundraising page with your teammates and they can share it with their personal network.
Once you have registered as a team leader and created your personal account and team fundraising page, inviting people to join your team is easy! All it takes is two links and your teammates are ready to go.
First, your team members need to REGISTER as a runner/walker - be sure to have them include your team name on the form.
Second, send your team members the link to your team fundraising page.
Log into your team fundraising page. From there you will see links to invite friends. You can send the link to your page via email or share on your social network accounts.
BE SURE to tell your teammates that they need to REGISTER as a runner/walker (they can include your team name on their registration form) and then they can start fundraising to meet your team goal.
Any questions, please contact Beth Maurer at email@example.com
If you know what team you are wanting to join, be sure to get the team name or the team captain's name.
First, register as a runner or walker - you can note the team or captain name on your registration form.
Next, head over to the fundraising section and search for your team's fundraising page. You can create your own personal fundraising page, or just share your team's fundraising page link.
Easy! You can visit our event page on Facebook and share or email the link for the Hope Run to your friends.
You can share the fundraising page for yourself or team by using the links for Facebook or email. We would love to have you share our event with your friends, family, and social networks. Every dollar raised helps to provide free services and support to women and babies in our community.
