At-a-glance Team Captain Duties

Bonus Recruitment Ideas

Consider asking your...

  • Spouse/partner: Of course, they'll join your team. Tell them it's a date - then surprise them with the news they're about to spend it with hundreds of other sweaty people wearing RIDE Shirts - they'll never forget the moment you asked...
  • Kids: Why not right? What a learning opportunity. The issues of the hungry, homeless and hurting are so important - what a great way for them to learn.
  • Siblings: You've got a couple on your nice list right? Great - now put them on your recruitment list.
  • Mom or Dad: Before you were born they used to have a life and did stuff, and had fun - and stuff - so ask them.
  • Work people: Yeah, that's a term. All week long they keep thinking how wonderful you are - you might as well invite them onto your team and prove their assumptions correct!
  • Neighbours: You shoveled their driveway all last winter - they kind of owe you - invite them)
  • Friends: Exactly - they'd love to join you because you're the most bestest bestie for life friend in the whole wide world.
  • Boss: She'd be soooo impressed but then even more impressed when she finds out you didn't invite her to impress her...
  • Pastor: Tell them they can wear their vestments on the walk, if they want.
  • Classmates: Save them from a Saturday of Netflix binging and help them do something fun and meaningful.
  • Church or small group: These folks are great fun and might love to walk for a few hours on a Saturday. Tell them it's a potluck though - church people LOVE potlucks.
  • Pretty much everyone: Pilates instructor, yoga friend the guy beside you on the bus every morning (Joe something), your favourite barista who always remembers your order, your accountant, your lawyer (our causes are a matter of justice - they should be all over it), your doctor, dentist, or do-gooder-friend-at-the-club-who-is-always-helping-somebody - the list is endless. Enjoy the brainstorming!
