Team Captains

Team Captains:
You've got your team and your sneakers ready to go. Now what?  GET YOUR TEAM MOVING!  Below, please find some quick tips to help motivate your team and get everyone excited for the Cancer Challenge!

  • Set a Team Goal. Setting a team goal is the first step to success and helps get everyone rallied around a common purpose. Make sure that everyone on your team knows what the team goal is and how they can contribute to helping achieve it.
  • Send emails to your team. This not only helps you track how your teammates are doing on their fundraising goals but you can also share encouragement, news and plan fundraising events to help your team reach (or exceed) your goal.
  • Gather as a group. Go for training runs/walks, have team fundraising events, or visit Zionsville together and check out some points on the route!  Meeting in person helps everyone stay motivated and gives you a chance to share creative new ideas for raising funds and having fun at the Challenge.
  • Get social. Encourage your teammates to post updates and ask for support on Facebook and other social media sites. Be sure they're sharing statuses and raising awareness of team fundraising activities!

Are dogs allowed? We love our furry friends but unfortunately we ask that you do not bring your dog for safety reasons.

What about strollers? Strollers are allowed, however, the track surface has thick soft dirt and will make it difficult to walk/run with a stroller.
