    Here are a few proven tips to help you have a rewarding and successful walk experience with your team! 

    Step 1: Set a realistic and meaningful goal for your self and team. Communicate that goal to your team members and work together to achieve it.

    Step 2: Write Personal Fundraising Letters & Emails. Compose a passionate and individualized letter about why you are walking and how people can support your fundraising efforts. 

    Step 3: Recruit Participants. Ask your friends, neighbors, family members and co-workers to join your team and help you to spread awareness and reach your team’s fundraising goal through their contacts.

    Step 4: Raise Money! The national fundraising average per person is $250. Encourage each of your of your team members to beat the national average.  Approach the businesses you frequent, or even better, ask your own company!  Lead by example, by making the first donation your own! 

    Step 5: Create Excitement. Design a team t-shirt or a unique team name, post flyers in your neighborhood, and share information on social media!

    Step 6: Celebrate Your Team’s Success. Attend the Walk. Take a team photo. Eat, drink and celebrate raising funds to find cures for Crohn's and colitis!
