Team Leader 101
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events can make a huge impact thanks to our collective fundraising power. The biggest way you can help is by becoming a team leader. But what exactly does that mean? Aside from being your squad's biggest cheerleader, being a team leader means you're responsible for recruiting teammates, setting fundraising goals, and organizing fundraising activities. But where to start?
Just Follow These Easy Steps:
1. Sign Up
Find the event closest to you and sign up to become a team leader. Give your team a fun and empowering name!
2. Recruit your team
Invite your friends, family, and coworkers to join in. Send emails, post on social media, shout from the rooftops - whatever it takes to build your team. And remember, the bigger your team, the more fundraising you can do, and the bigger impact you can have on breast cancer.
3. Set fundraising goals
Make a plan with your team. Set your group and individual fundraising goals and strategize fun ways to reach them.
4. Raise Money
All you have to do is ask. Seriously. Send emails, spread the word via social media, and start a Facebook Fundraiser. Plan a group fundraiser like a bake sale or spaghetti dinner. And don't forget to use the FUNdraising app!
5. Rock the Walk
On event day, have fun! Coordinate your team's outfits and show up early to join in the pre-walk activities. Celebrate all your hard work while remembering the powerful impact your team is having on the fight against breast cancer.

This isn’t what I wanted.
Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.
There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.
How We Support the American Cancer Society
Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.
Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
