Being a
Team Captain

Being the captain of a team is a powerful leadership experience.

If there is a greater feeling than leading a team to raise potentially tens of thousands of dollars for cancer research at the Perkins, it would be crossing the finishing line to meet up with your team to celebrate your achievement. It’s a life-altering experience.

As a team captain, it’s your job to keep your team organised and up to date with the latest information about the MACA Cancer 200.

With larger teams, we can help you design a leadership structure that assists you to delegate some responsibilities to a select group of your teammates to make your life easier and to help raise as much as possible - and look good doing it, thanks to your Team Jersey Manager!

As the team captain, you will be the main point of contact with your Perkins fundraising coach, being only a call, text or email away.

Team captains are provided with special resources to help you help your team, such as scripted emails and texts to help you recognise your team members for hitting fundraising and training milestones.

We can also put you in touch with some of our more seasoned team captains who are always happy to share their knowledge from leading teams over the years.

If you would like to start a team and be the team captain, either register or get in touch with your fundraising coach at
