Forming a Team
If you are an animal lover, we bet many of your friends, family and colleagues are, too! Gather your entourage to raise money together and walk as a team. Not only will you have more fun, but you will have much more fundraising potential! (Each team member must register individually before linking themselves to the team!)
Do You Enjoy A Good Rivalry?
Challenge the local businesses around you to a competition where the animals always win. We will announce the winners of Company Team Contest the day of the walk! (And here is a competitive tip; ask your employer to match your team’s pledges!)
Fundraising Tip #1: Set a Goal
Set an aggressive goal for yourself and challenge your friends and family to match it. Remember, the more pledges you collect, the more animals you can help. They are counting on you! Plus prizes will be given to top fundraisers in both individual team categories.
