Being part of a team is one of the most fun and rewarding ways to participate in the AHRC Walk.
As a team you can walk together, raise money together, support each other and celebrate together, all while supporting people with developmental disabilities to contribute, particpate and become valued community members.
You only need two people to create a team! There is no limit to the size of a team and you don't all have to walk! In fact, your team members can include volunteers or other non-walkers who can register as virtual walkers.
Corporate teams have a corporate affiliation and are traditionally made up of employees of the company and friends and family members of employees.
Friends and Family Teams
Friends and family teams are just like they sound – a group of people participating together to create lives for people with I/DD! Sometimes these teams are walking in support of a loved one or coming together to simply support a great cause.
