Team Strategies


Form a Walk Team – Create a Team Web Page (be sure to tell your story about why you are walking) and set a goal.


Ask everyone you know if they would like to join your team- family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors.  Contact them by e-mail, Facebook or Twitter and give them the link to your Team Web Page.  Encourage them to create their own Web Page to raise funds.

Where you work:

     Ask your company to sponsor your team by funding T-shirts/hats.  Challenge another office or branch.
     Ask your company if they will match the money raised.
     If someone in your office or their family member has lupus, walk in their honour.
     Place posters in employee break room, mailroom, copy room etc.
     After the walk have a team photo placed in the company newsletter.
     Have a fundraiser at work so those who can’t walk can participate (i.e. raffle, dress down day).
     Get incentives for the employees to raise more money.
     Send an email and do an online registration challenge.

Encourage team members to contact family, friends, business associates, and anyone they see in the course of their day to make a donation. Tell everyone about the walk either by e-mail or letter campaign.

Post frequently on Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter to remind everyone- ask them to share the links on their sites even if they are not participating in the Walk.

START  NOW!!   Be creative and share your successes with everyone.
