Team Communication Remember to keep your team updated. It is very important that you tell your team the information that we tell you. Forward emails, send out reminders, find time to get together. Try to get together briefly at least once or twice to discuss things as a team. Set goals. Be there for them!
Adopt-A-Survivor Goal: Every team have at least one survivor! Who is a survivor? Anyone who currently has or previously had cancer Does not necessarily have to have beaten cancer Survivors do not need to be present at Relay, but can be “adopted” by a team If you know any survivors, invite them to the event! Get their information so they can be on mailing list for free game tickets, etc.
