Forming or joining a team is a great way to experience Hike MS! The camaraderie and support you'll feel from the rest of your team is like no other. By forming a team during the registration process, you will become the designated team captain and will be in charge of rallying the troops for the big day.
Team Captain Checklist:
What is an Official Team?
An Official Team is any team that has four or more registered team members. The benefits of being an Official Team include being eligible for a tent in Team Village as well as being eligible for a Team Award. You are more than welcome to have an unofficial team of less than four registered team members, but we highly encourage you to find a few more people to join you. The more, the merrier... right?
Team captains serve as "inspirational leaders" for their team members. People raise more money together than they do alone.
How do you fundraise on a team?
As a team member (or team captain) you can fundraise like everyone else. Instead of your fundraising going directly to the overall team, we funnel it there through you first.
So, when you turn in a check or receive a donation online, you get the individual credit for it and your team also receives credit for it. This allows you to qualify for the individual clubs and the team awards.
