Team Captains

Team Captains are a crucial part of the Hope & Heroes Walk. They not only form a team, but help lead their team’s recruitment and fundraising efforts. It is thanks to our incredible Team Captains and their commitment to finding a CURE for children’s cancer and blood disorders that the Walk’s success has grown to raise over $2.8 million!

Whether you are a returning Team Captain or are looking to form a team for the first time, we are excited to have you and your community walking with us on Saturday, September 10th at Pier 16 for the children and families being treated at the Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology & Stem Cell Transplantation at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

You can earn Team Fundraising Rewards when you raise $3,500 as a team. Continue to fundraise and you’ll continue to qualify for rewards!

Every Team Captain has access to the Team Captain Kit, designed to help with fundraising & recruiting to ensure you are set up for success! Team Captains will receive a virtual kit via email after registration, and will also receive a Team Captain Kit via mail which will include a Team Captain t-shirt, and the Hope & Heroes Walk poster and postcard.


As a Team Captain, your Participant Center allows you to customize your personal fundraising page AND your team page. Access your Participant Center by logging into the Walk website with your username and password. Remember to bookmark your Participant Center so you can visit it often to check your progress and the progress of your team.

Your efforts make a real difference for children living with cancer or blood disorders. We look forward to seeing all your success this season!
