FORM A TEAM (And yes, you can do so virtually and safely)
While participating in a Walk for Sjögren's is a wonderful experience, forming or joining a team can make it that much more rewarding. This is a great way to bring family and friends together in the fight against Sjögren's. It also provides everyone with an opportunity to make a difference when a family member, friend or co-worker has been affected by the disease.
Forming a team is a great way to raise even more awareness and funds to further Sjögren's research and education. Being part of a team is a truly great way to experience the event. The camaraderie and support you'll feel from the rest of your team is like no other.
By forming a team and serving as a team captain, your job is:
- Recruitment. Recruit individuals to join your team. The more the merrier! Team members can be anyone from family, friends, coworkers, neighbors...anyone you can think of! And there is no limit to how big a team can be.
- Fundraising. Encourage your teammates to raise funds towards the team goal. Have fun with a little competition to see who can raise the most money or have team focused efforts that has everyone working together.
- Inspire. Individuals that join your team and help fundraise are doing it because of you. Share your story with them, why it is so important for everyone to be involved and how much it means to you to have their support.
