Campus Walk Team Central
Welcome to Team Central, your hub for resources exclusive for Out of the Darkness Campus Walk Teams!
Starting a Campus Walk Team
The different kinds of Campus Walks Teams:
Friends and Family Teams
To start a team it only takes one person who will register as a Team Captain.
The Team Captain is the team member who can contact the other team members through their account, as well as update and edit the team page.
Team Name and Goal - be sure to have a team name ready when registering for the walk, as well as a team goal! The goal can be changed at any time by the team captain.

Team-Building Tools and Ideas
The larger the Campus Walks teams are, the more we can bring support to our schools and communities. Here are some tools to kick-start your team-building, and to bring more walkers to your team:
Team Page — your team's message and roster on the Campus Walk website. You can use it to recruit new members with the page link. Team Captains can log into their account to edit the team page, add a customized message and photo, email team members, and track recruiting and fundraising.
Sample Messages — we wrote some sample team messages that the captain can use to invite friends, family, fellow students, teachers, coaches and coworkers to join your Campus Walk team.

Fundraising as a Team
Team Page — Every team member should update and personalize their fundraising page when they log into their walk account, and should send their own emails through the account to fundraise.
Team Flyers - Use one or both of the editable team flyers to recruit and raise funds! Flyer One Flyer Two
Sample Fundraising Messages — we wrote sample fundraising messages that are already in your account, BUT feel free to customize your messages to make them more personal!
About Team Donations — Donations can be made to a team, BUT the T-shirt and other incentives are based only on INDIVIDUAL fundraising. Any donations made to the team as a whole will not go to any of the team members' individual fundraising totals. So please fundraise as an individual by sending friends and family to your personal page, and ask for a team "sponsorship" from local businesses, clubs, etc. and use it as a way to ask for donations during a team fundraising event!
T-Shirts - Each individual walker who raises $100 or more will receive a free t-shirt. Many teams have their own shirts made prior to the walk.
