As team captain, you play a critical role in Pink on Parade’s success.
When you participate, it is not just about raising awareness in our community about breast cancer - it’s actually much more than that... by rallying a team, you are helping a mother, daughter, sister, or even neighbor receive vital support through the programs of The Pink Ribbon Place, a program of Riverside Community Health Foundation. So we want to help you be an awesome team captain! This guide was designed to help you make your team spectacular by recruiting more team members, raising more money, and having a lot of fun along the way!
Team Building Matters
Pink on Parade operates on the “the more, the merrier” principle, which means that we encourage you to invite as many people as possible to join in on the fun! Bigger teams are not just more fun, but they also help you fundraise more effectively. When you have more team members, you can set your team fundraising goals higher, because everyone is working towards the same goal.
Engage Your Team
Throughout the course of October, we will be running virtual contests that you can participate in from the comfort of your own home! Encourage your team to engage by developing a story, or by participating in one or all of the contest activities!
Win Team Prizes
We want to encourage you to build amazing and support teams, so we are giving away a few goodies in the following categories:
❣️ MOST MONEY RAISED
This prize goes to the team that collectively raises the most dollars for the event! Remember that as a Team Captain, your role is to rally up supporters and encourage them to fundraise on their own. All the dollars that they raise goes towards your Team total! That means if you have 10 team members and each person asks for $10 from 10 people, then you already a team total of $1000!
❣️MOST SPIRITED TEAM
This prize will be awarded to the team with the most number of entries into the contests! So get your teammates excited to participate in at least one or all of the contests!
❣️MOST CREATIVE TEAM
Roll up those sleeves, pull out those paint brushes, and be creative with your team! Put your heads together and help tell the story of why breast cancer awareness is important to you and your team!
