Thank you for registering your team to join us at our 2023 DC Miles for Melanoma event on Saturday, May 6, 2023! We look forward to having you and your team join us as we raise funds to eradicate melanoma through continued research, education and advocacy efforts. Your role as Team Captain is an integral part of not only the Miles for Melanoma events but the overall mission of the Melanoma Research Foundation.
As the captain of a team, you will be the primary point of contact for your team members. It is your job to create the team, invite people to join and keep members motivated, inspired and informed of the team’s progress. You will be responsible for making sure that every member is registered and ready to help your team raise funds.
Miles for Melanoma Team Captains:
RAISE FUNDS: Inform your team on the importance of FUNdraising. Please note your registration fee only covers the overhead costs of participation and is not added to your fundraising total.
EDUCATE: Provide your team members with a background on the Miles for Melanoma event and the mission of the MRF.
SET GOALS: Come up with a FUNdraising goal as a team! Try to increase your goal from last year or if this is your first year, aim for an attainable team goal of $500. You can always increase after you get started! Encourage each team member to set their own individual goals and share the tools from our event Participant Center or our 5 Easy Ways to Raise $500 guide below to help them succeed.
ORGANIZE: A team captain should keep track of each team member’s progress and offer suggestions as to various ways for their team members to reach their goals. Also, be sure to communicate all vent day details so your team members can be prepared for a fun Miles for Melanoma experience!
HAVE FUN: The best part of the Miles for Melanoma program is coming together with your team to support your local melanoma community, share resources and create awareness. Team photo’s or photo collages, are a great way to remember the day and the amazing impact your team made in the advancement towards a cure for melanoma!
