When you ask your friends and family to join your team and they ask others to join, things begin growing and before you know it, your team has grown into dozens of people asking dozens of people. It can grow into five, ten, maybe as many as a hundred people who would not otherwise have known about . So get started recruiting your teammates today!
NOTE: Each team member is still required to raise his or her minimum fundraising requirement individually. We encourage team members to raise even more! The purpose of a team is to support each individual in doing more, not less, than they could do on their own.
When you form a team, you create a group of people that can train together, raise money together as a team. It is a great way to keep your motivation up and your fundraising on track. You can hold each other accountable and keep each other company along the way. Having others to lean on, and having others count on you, will push you to get up a little earlier in the morning, or head out in the cold or heat to ride those extra kilometres. Plus, it makes The Ride that much more fun to be doing it with a group of friends, as committed to conquering cancer as you are.
Here are some ways you can ride with a team:
- Ask another Rider you meet at an Orientation or Training Ride.
- Call a Ride Guide to find other Riders who are looking to be part of a team.
- Form a team around your family. It is a bonding experience that you will never forget.
- Start a team with the people you work with. Talk to your Human Resources Director about the value the experience could bring to team spirit at your company.
