Set a team goal

MDA recommends that you form a team of 10 people.  If you have more than 10 people to recruit, that’s fantastic — but it may work better to form sub teams.    Research proves that a shared goal is the most powerful and most likely to be obtained.  A team of people all sharing the same goal dramatically improves your chances of success. So set an MDA Muscle Walk Team Goal and involve all your team members in the effort — and victory will be yours!
