Have a passion for Run the Rocks and love to serve as a leader? Team Captains gather together family, friends, colleagues and their community to participate in Run the Rocks. Every Team Captain will lead their team differently with their own unique perspective and approach, but some typical responsibilities as a Run the Rocks Team Captain include:
As a participant, you have access to great online tools that you and your team members can use to register, send email messages, request and track donations, and monitor progress. Customize a fundraising page for your team, and have each member of your team create theirs as well.
We’ll help you through the process of being a team captain by providing you with regular emails tailored to help you with recruitment and fundraising.
