Can I join an existing team as an individual participant?
Whether you can join an existing team depends upon how the charity and/or Team Captain has set-up the campaign.
If there is a “Join Team” button below the “Donate Now” button on a Team fundraising page, you can join the team! After you click the join team button you will be prompted to sign up and create your fundraising page. It’s easy and will only take a few minutes. Once complete, you will either be ready to start fundraising, sharing your page with your personal network, or you will be notified that the charity or Team Captain must first approve your participation. If approved, you will be sent an email confirmation with a link where you can view and manage your page and start sharing it with friends and family.
If the charity or Team Captain has set-up the campaign to be by “Invitation only,” you will not be able to join the Team unless you are invited by the Team Captain through email. These Teams are not open to the public.
