Ride as a Team
When you ask your friends and family to join your team, and in turn they start asking others, the ball starts rolling. Before you know it your team will grow 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 The 2016 MACA Ride to Conquer Cancer®. So get started and recruit your teammates today!
NOTE: Each team member is still required to individually raise his or her minimum fundraising requirement. 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.
WHY A TEAM?
When you form a team, you create a group of people that can train together and raise money together. 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 and get through those extra kilometres. Plus, it makes The Ride that much more fun to be doing 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 your workmates. Talk to your Human Resources Director about the value the experience could bring to team spirit at your company.
