Welcome Team Captain!

Thank you for becoming a Team Captain for Angels Among Us. As a team captain, your job is to motivate your family, friends, and colleagues to join your team and collect donations. Our job is to give you the tools to make your team captain experience fun and rewarding.

  • Pick a Team Name — Have fun with this — we have some very creative and inspiring team names. Check the "Team List" so you don't duplicate an existing team name.
  • Register Your Team Online - To register a new team, click "Register" and then "Start a New Team." The system will walk you through the process.
  • Register a Returning Team - To re-activate your team you must first click "register" and "start a new team."  Click on the blue "sign in" using your user id and password from last year. A display box with your team name will appear; clicking on the team name will re-activate your team for this year. You will then be directed to your participant page from last year. Please be sure to add your story on the Team Page, if you haven't already; or add a picture or video.
  • Email Your Team Information (name, captain, address, telephone, preferred email, and who the team is "in honor of" or "in memory of") to angelsamongus@dm.duke.edu. Team communications and updates are through the website and email only.
  • Team T-shirts - Many teams design a special t-shirt for their team members to wear on event day; while this is a fun idea, it is not required.

 Tools to help you get started:

  • Participation Guide - This guide provides you with tips on how to maneuver around the participant center.
  • Team Captain Guide - This guide provides you with the steps to create a successful team, including ideas for fundraising and sample letters to send to friends and businesses.
  • Team Donation Form - This sheet is for you and your team members to use when asking people to make gifts or pledges to support your team.
  • Matching Gifts - Tell your donors to check to see if their employer is part of Duke’s Company Matching Program. This is a great way to double their donation.
  • Event Information- Below are links to fact sheets about The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center and Angels Among Us. This is great information to give to local businesses, corporations, or individuals when approaching them for a donation. We want to keep the public informed about the research, treatments, and care given at Duke.

The following PDF files may be printed for your use in spreading awareness for brain tumor research
being conducted at the
