Frequently Asked Questions About Teams

- Who should be the Team Captain?
The person who has the most leadership skills on the team and is able to give the most time to the project.
- Is there a minimum or maximum number of walkers on a team?
No. Teams can be as small as two or three walkers or as large as hundreds of walkers.
- How much time will it take to be a Team Captain?
It’s hard to quantify how much time it takes to be a Team Captain. It really depends on each Team Captain and how much time/effort s/he puts into it. Being a Team Captain shouldn’t take too much time or be overwhelming – it should be fun!
- How are funds raised through my team?
Individual team members are responsible for setting personal fundraising goals and raising funds from family, friends and co-workers. Teams can also conduct special events to raise money.
- Can I walk if I don’t form a team?
Yes. We think you’ll have more fun if you join a team, but many walkers come individually.
- How do we raise money?​
Write a letter or send an e-mail to friends and family asking for their support. Our Web site, http://walk.hemophilia.org/Washington, offers a safe and secure way to send a donation. If you collect checks, bring them with you to the Walk.
