Team Recruitment

Recruiting, retaining, and building teams are essential for a successful Jingle Bell Run 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 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 events around the country. It's a great way to build morale among employees/members! Several nationwide companies and organizations have already committed to forming Jingle Bell Run 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.

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

Mass Marketing

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