Imagine crossing the finish line arm in arm with your team mates. It will be a moment you’ll never forget.
When you start a team and ask your friends and family to join you, in turn they start asking others and the ball starts rolling. Before you know it, your team will grow into dozens of people asking dozens of people! It can grow into five, ten, even over one hundred people who would not otherwise have known about the Susan Suduk OneDay to Conquer Cancer. So get started and recruit your teammates today!
NOTE: Each team member is still required to individually raise his or her minimum fundraising requirement of $500. We encourage team members to raise even more! The purpose of a team is to support each individual in doing more, not less, than they could do on their own.
When you form a team, you create a group of people that can train together and raise money together. It is a great way to keep your motivation up and your fundraising on track. You can hold each other accountable and keep each other company along the way. Having others to lean on, and having others count on you, will push you to get up a little earlier in the morning and get through those extra kilometres. Plus, it makes The OneDay that much more fun to be doing with a group of friends as committed to conquering cancer as you are.
Here are some ways to start a OneDay team:
Call your OneDay coach to find other participants in your area who are looking to be part of a team. Ask your family to form a team. It’s a bonding experience that you will never forget. Start a team with your workmates. Talk to your Human Resources Director about the value the experience could bring to team spirit at your company.
If you have already registered for The OneDay, you can register your team by emailing your OneDay coach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven't registered to participate yet, you can register yourself and your team at the same time. If you're using the online participant registration form, just select "Create a Team" (or "Join a Team" if you are registering for the first time as a member of an already existing team).
Each time a new team member comes on board, just email email@example.com to add their name to the team.
