Team Captains lead their team by representing them at monthly update meetings in your community.  Team Captains are the liaisons between the Event committee and their team.  Team Captains organize and delegate the team's fund-raising events throughout the year - as well as the team's participation in activities throughout the night of the event.

Team Members help out by participating in team and individual fund-raisers throughout the year.  At the Relay For Life event, team members take turns walking around the track.  Some will walk in the afternoon.  Some will walk in the evening.  And yes, some will even walk the "zombie" shift (the wee hours of the morning).
