If you're the glue that holds your friendship-network together, or the kind of person people gravitate towards, forming a team is a powerful way to bring together like-minded people to contribute towards a worthwhile cause. Take the lead today and form a team!
To captain a team, first register as an individual participant. Simply click the 'create a team' button on the homepage, fill in the registration details and at the end you will be prompted to create a team.
If you are already registered, click the 'login' button at the top right-hand corner of the screen and enter your username and password. Click 'Create a Team' and you're all set.
There is no cost to create a team; each member simply pays his or her entry fee. If you would prefer to pay the whole team's entry fees in one payment, contact us and we will organise a team payment code.
Encourage people to join your team by sending out a group email, posting to Facebook or Twitter or putting up posters at your workplace, gym, school or a local business. Each team member must first register as an individual. Once they have registered, ask them to visit your team page and click 'Join Team'.
Make your team page your own by adding a personal message explaining how your team came together and why you choose to support MS. Upload photographs or your company logo. Your team page will display your team members' names and profile pictures, as well as the team's total fundraising goal.
Now it's time to start fundraising. Read about getting started with fundraising and check out our fundraising ideas. The more people you have in your team, the more ambitious your fundraising activities can be. Why not get your whole team together to brainstorm ideas?
As team captain, you can use your team fundraising page to send emails to all team participants. Part of your role as captain is to keep your members motivated to reach the team's fundraising goal, so remember to pile on the enthusiasm! You will also be able to post team blogs to keep your sponsors and supporters up to date on your team's fundraising activities.
Ride the MS Gong Ride on Sunday 6th November with your team! Don't forget each team is entitled to a free professional team photo. Round up your team on the day before the event and have your picture taken in the team photos area at each start site. We will then email the photo out to you after the event.
Please contact us if you would like advice or assistance with captaining your team.
