Team Recruitment

Recruiting, retaining and building teams are essential for a successful Jingle Bell Run/Walk event and should be the #1 priority for both staff and volunteer committees.  Why are TEAMS so important?
Average Team Captain raises $346, and team members raise $41 compared to $33 for individual. 

Here are some tools to assist in team recruitment:

Kickoff Events

Many teams love the idea of hosting an internal Jingle Bell Run/Walk kickoff event at their location.  Here are some tools to inspire people to jingle with us:

National Teams

The National Team Program is an opportunity for businesses and organizations to participate in Jingle Bell Run/Walks around the nation. It's a great way to build morale among employees/members! Several nationwide companies and organizations have already committed to forming Jingle Bell Run/Walk teams in multiple locations across the country. These teams realize the impact of arthritis and are working to help further the Arthritis Foundation's mission.

  • Team Abbvie
  • Team Alpha Omicron Pi (AOII) Foundation
  • Team Arthritis Foundation Staff
  • Juvenile Arthritis (JA) Families Team
  • Team Lockheed Martin
  • Team Massage Envy

If your company or organization is interested in forming a regional or national team, please contact

Mass Marketing

The Jingle Bell Run/Walk event has mass appeal, so it is imperative that brochures/pamphlets are distributed throughout your community.  Be sure to highlight the Jingle Bell Run/Walk through a variety of channels (community calendars, Facebook, Twitter and media).
