Anyone can create a team for Walk for Water when registering as a participant. After you fill in your personal details, you have a choice to create your own team or join a team.

When you create a team, you will be automatically designated Team Captain. As Team Captain, you can invite others to join your team. You have the option to show your team as 'open to public', meaning anyone can join your team or 'private', meaning only invited people can join your team. 

To join a public team simply click on the "Join Us" button on the teams fundraising page. If a team is set to 'private' usually the team captain will send out an invitation to join that team or you will need to ask the team captain to send you an invite.

You can choose to set up a single fundraising page for your team or invite your teammates to set up their own pages and together you can work towards your overall team goal and target. Each of you will manage your own personal fundraising account, where you can track your distance and fundraising, but everyone’s tally will be added up and combined on your team page

If you have a school list that you would like to add to your team or need help with your team please email events@wateraid.org.au and we can assist you.
