How Do I Get My Community Involved?
Step 1: Choose a Team Captain
Each complex will need a Team Captain to lead their team and coordinate with the 500 Festival. The Team Captain can change if needed and does not necessarily need to participate themselves, but they do get free entry!
Step 2: Enroll Apartment Complex
The Team Captain will fill out a team registration form . The 500 Festival will provide the Team Captain with promotional and training materials, along with a link to your team's roster and your unique discount code. Promotional materials include virtual registration postcards, registration flyers, copies that may be added to monthly resident newsletters, and a social media toolkit!
Step 3: Get Your Residents Signed Up!
The Team Captain will reach out to residents with all the promotional and training materials along with the unique coupon code.
Step 4: Start Recruiting!
Here are some recruiting tips you can use to enhance resident participation:
- Motivate your team- Encourage residents to sign up by offering small prizes or incentives to people who register.
- Stay active- Remind residents to go for a quick run/walk during breaks, lunch hour, or after work. If your complex has a gym, plan a group Indy Mini training day!
- Make it fun- Continue to update your residents on how many people have registered, or even plan weekly or monthly challenges for running/walking. Anyone who isn’t signed up might see how much fun it is and maybe be inspired to join.
- Communicate the benefits- Residents receive a discount on registration, an opportunity to engage with the community, customized training plans, and other resources.
