Definition of Team Captain: YOU!
Thank you for taking the first step towards making our event a great success. A Team Captain’s job is to motivate and encourage others to join your team, whether it is with coworkers, friends or family. Last year more than half of the participants were part of a team honoring or memorializing someone affected by epilepsy.
- Can consist of family, friends, co-workers, classmates, athletes or anyone else you can recruit
- Can be as big or small as you want
- Can consist of any combination of runners, walkers, adults, or youth.
** Each team must have a Team Name and an assigned Team Captain.**
In the spirit of friendly competition, awards will be presented (and bragging rights bestowed) to the largest team, most team spirit, and most money raised.
Where Do I Start?
Once the team is in place, the Team Captain also acts as the key liaison between their team and the Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas, which is organizing the IM OK Walk to End Epilepsy – Austin event.
Check out our team captain resources for ideas to help you build a successful team and keep your team motivated and excited, enhance your personal goals and thank those that support your efforts.
