3 5K Walk & 5K / 10K RUN THANK YOU FOR JOINING US FOR THE 18th ANNUAL MOTTEP LIFE WALK/RUN! On behalf of Gift of Life MOTTEP (Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program), recipients, waiting recipients and donor families, we welcome you to the 18th Annual LIFE Walk/Run. By participating in this event, you will support those individuals and families waiting for life saving organs. Can you believe that LIFE Walk/Run is in its 18th year of promoting public awareness about organ and tissue donation? This years event is just around the corner! We encourage all participants to register on the Michigan Donor Registry to officially record their decision to be an organ and tissue donor. July 25, 2015 will be a day filled with family, friends, food, and fun. We invite you to come join with donors, donor families, recipients, waiting recipients and others who share the message that each one can extend life through organ and tissue donation one step, at a time. We will see you there as one person, one family, one team, one organization, with one purpose - to save lives. This event helps us educate multicultural communities about the need for donors and how you can save lives. Meet and greet your local civic and community leaders, meet and make new friends, receive health screenings, visit vendor tables, enjoy face painting, enjoy a heart healthy breakfast & lunch, potentially lose up to 5,000 calories, receive a free t-shirt with registration and know that you are helping us to saving lives. Invite your family, friends, co-workers and others to join you in forming a team. This handbook was developed to help you with online registration and provide you with helpful recruiting tools and tips. It includes everything you need to know about being a Team Captain and walker/runner. It also includes fundraising tools and tips to make your LIFE Walk experience something that you will enjoy doing for years to come. Read on to find answers to your questions and ideas to build a successful team. Again, thank you for your support. Please contact us at (313) or at for additional materials and fundraising support. Sincerely, Remonia Chapman (Gift of Life MOTTEP Program Director)

7 How To Form A Team Recruit, Recruit, Recruit 5K Walk & 5K / 10K RUN Make a list of possible team members: family, friends, co-workers, classmates, sorority sisters, fraternity brothers, church members, golf league, bowling league etc. Determine a team name. You may want to wait until you have your team assembled before naming it. Set a fundraising goal. Register your team on online or download the team registration form and mail it in or drop it off at our office. 736 Lothrop, Detroit, MI Recruitment Tips When recruiting co-workers, obtain permission from your supervisor or manager. Speak about LIFE Walk/Run at a company or employee meeting. Ask a supervisor or manager to send an on your behalf. Include details on how they can sign-up. Post information in your workspace & public places, like fliers in the lunch room. Place a sign-up sheet for those who want to join the team. Offer incentives for signing up. Set a deadline. Conduct a drawing for those who register early. Combine the walk with company fitness efforts/wellness programs. Invite co-workers to join your team and walk or train during breaks or lunch. Double your money. Ask your company to match all monies raised and put the company name on your T-shirt. Managing Your Team Send s to your friends, family, and co-workers to join or sponsor your team. Pesonalize your fundraising page with photographs and a personal story. Use to inform members about team meetings or group fundraising activities. Set a team fundraising goal and a team recruitment goal. Track fundraising and recruitment progress online. Check team rankings to see how your team compares to others. The FirstGiving website is a safe and secure way to fundraise. Every effort is made to ensure your privacy and financila information is protected.

8 5K Walk & 5K / 10K RUN Have Your Team? Next Steps... Provide each team member with a LIFE Walk/Run flyer and the website to log on and register. Personalize the cause. Are you participating in honor or memory of someone, a donor or recipient, inform members. Set a fundraising goal together, one that translates into individual team goals. For example, a team of 10 may set a goal of $500, each team member will be requested to raise $50. Encourage team members to collect donations from those wishing to support their efforts. Organize team fundraisers such as bake sales or raffles to help the team reach its goal. Set a deadline for each team member to collect their donations and turn them in to you. Its recommended that the Team Captain turn in the money for the entire team prior to LIFE Walk/Run. Use FirstGiving (online registration software), to create a personal page. Customize your page with a personal message, photo or video and send out via . This is great way to offer donors the immediate opportunity to support your efforts by making a credit card donation online. On average, walkers who ask for donations by raise eight times more funds than walkers who use mail. Make it fun and update your team page frequently. Share new ideas and tips as well as updates on team progress. Develop incentives, select team colors and design a team t-shirt. Take a team photo and upload to your team fundraising page. Day of Walk Pre-registration Those who registered online prior to the walk should check in at the Pre-registration table. At that time walkers and runners will receive their arm badge, number and t-shirt. Donations of checks and cash can be turned in at this time. Once checked in, proceed to the LIFE Walk Cafe and enjoy fresh fruit, bagels, coffee and juice and enjoy the Pre- Walk festivities and vendors.
