Team Captains play a vital role in March To Get Screened and are the team leaders that get their family, friends and co-workers organized. Your support shows the community that it starts with you to help persons living with colon cancer and those who need to be screened. Thank you for the time and energy you are putting into raising funds and awareness for MTGS and helping end colon cancer in the Jacksonville community.
Step 1: Register Yourself as the Team Captain.
Step 2: Get Your Team Members Registered.
Step 3: Start Fundraising!
Touch base via email, phone or text (even hold a team meeting)
Brainstorm fundraising ideas
Inspire the team with stories/facts about BGF and MTGS
Keep the team informed of their progress - highlight a certain member’s fundraising efforts (they received a big donation or reached their goal)
Look to your family, friends and co-workers to be on your team
Be sure to emphasize #MTGS5K as an opportunity to make a difference in the Jacksonville community and how it is helping BGF end colon cancer in our community
Seek people with different connections to widen the circle of possible donors
Challenge the team
Foster a competitive spirit
Thank members throughout the process
Consider ways you might recognize each team member for their contributions
Help the team share in the glory of any formal awards received the day of the event
Remember to recognize your own contributions and keep in mind that each dollar raised is impacting someone who is living with colon cancer
