The Plan: Identify yourCorporate Team Captain. This could be you! Once you do that, contact contact the Central Oklahoma Chapter for help with your team plan and timeline.
Set a goal for Walkers. How many Walkers should you expect to get? The average is 20-50% of your employee base. Include family members, friends and neighbors, too. Then, set a goal for dollars. On average, each JDRF Walker raises $100.
Recruit one Team Captain for every 10 Walkers. Send a recruitment memo to department heads for their help. Invite employees interested in serving as Team Captains to attend a JDRF Kick-off Luncheon, where they can pick up Walk supplies and order additional supplies.
Promote the Walk event with a memo, then announce and host a Kick-Off for all employees. Be sure to emphasize the $100 per Walker goal in all your communications. Collect pre-registration forms from all Walkers and return them to the Central Oklahoma office.
Teach Walkers how to raise money with these helpful tips and tricks. Don’t forget to ask family, friends and vendors to get involved too!
Walk! Then say “thank you” to everyone who contributed to your team’s success.
