Tips for Teams
Each year, thousands of teams, guided by community leaders like you, come together for AIDS Walk New York. Proving that we are stronger together than we are apart, these teams are responsible for 65% of the millions of dollars raised for GMHC and more than 40 other tri-state area AIDS service organizations.
At the helm of every great team is a great Team Leader.
Below you will find the necessary tools to build a successful team. As a Team Leader, your goals are to recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to join your team, and then help them fundraise! We encourage you to start now – ask at least one friend to join your team today!
