What it means to be a Team Captain

Bringing your community together! Being a team captain is a great opportunity to bring your families, friends, coworkers, and everyone else in your community together to support the Arthritis Foundation!  Share your #missionmoment of WHY you jingle with your family and friends, what a world without arthritis means to you and how they can help support the cause by joining your team!

Team Challenge

We're so excited to bring back the Team Challenge this year and we want to personally invite YOU and your team to participate in this year’s Team Challenge! The top team(s) who recruit the most team members and the top team(s) who fund raise the most by race day will be recognized on race day during the pre-race show and will be featured in the Puget Sound Business Journal following the race in January 2019!

We will share weekly updates on the Team Challenge Standings on social media so you are in the know on how your team is doing overall!
