Join the Cause... become a Team Captain!
Team Captains are the core of our Walk; without you, we could not do it. Becoming a Team Captain is easy and very rewarding. Simply click the NAMIWalks logo below and select "Form a Walk Team." Then follow the step by step instructions to register your Team online today.
NAMIWalks NH Teams are simply groups of fundraising Walkers consisting of 3 or more people (including the Team Captain). Teams can represent companies, schools, organizations, communities, or even just be a group of your friends and family. As a NAMIWalks Team Captain you will recruit Walkers to walk with your Team and raise funds for the Walk.
What does a Team Captain do?
Follow these simple steps and you will be on your way.
Why should I form a Team?
To Raise Awareness About Mental Illness and Educate Others
Participating in NAMIWalks NH is a unique opportunity to raise awareness and educate others about mental illness. We can provide your organization with speakers to talk about the Walk and the impact of mental illness on our communities. Speakers can address your organization’s team kickoff, monthly meeting, school assembly, or gathering. Forming a Team at your company, school, or organization helps to educate others about mental illness and gives you and your teammates an opportunity to talk to others about the importance of education and treatment.
To Raise Money
People who Walk with a Team often raise more money. Team members can help you recruit additional Walkers and encourage others to meet their fundraising goals through friendly competition. For tips on raising money, see our Fundraising and NAMIWalks Minute Videos pages.
To Demonstrate Your Commitment
It is a powerful show of solidarity the day of NAMIWalks NH to see Team t-shirts and signs representing businesses, congregations, schools, neighborhoods, and families all committed to eliminating the stigma surrounding mental illness. Your Team presence will demonstrate your organization’s or group’s commitment to your community and this cause.
To Have Fun!
Walking with a Team makes Walk day activities and the 5K Walk more! A Team can also be a great morale booster for your organization. There is lots of entertainment at the Walk site, and everyone is invited to the free barbecue following the Walk.
