                           How To Build A Team For The Walk-A-Thon

Here is how to build a successful team. You select ten of your colleagues or co-workers to be walkers in the
Walk-A-Thon. You meet with the walkers and ask them to solicit ten of their friends or associates for pledges
or donations. Each walker should ask for a minimum of two dollars ($2) per mile – total walking will be 5
miles ($10 pledge).
You should encourage all walkers to collect their pledges before the Walk-A-Thon. This will make your job
easier. Each walker will have a minimum of $100.00 in pledges and the team will raise $1000.00 for CFI.

                                        Steps In Building A Team

   •   SELECT TEN FRIENDS TO BE WALKERS
   •   ASK EACH WALKER TO SOLICIT TEN PERSONS FOR PLEDGES
   •   ASK FOR A MINIMUM OF $10.00 PER PLEDGE
   •   COLLECT PLEDGES IN ADVANCE OF WALK-A-THON
   •   SECURE EXTRA WALKERS FOR BACK-UP
