All you have to do is text @2017bwt to 81010. This should sign your phone number up under the 2017 BW Team Captains group in the app so you can send or receive messages directly from DSACO. 


Thank you for registering your team for the 2017 Columbus Buddy Walk®!  We are very excited that your team will be joining us on Sunday, October 1, 2017 for a day full of fun and excitement. Remind your friends and family to mark their calendars. Whether this is your first walk or your 16th walk, please be sure to download and print the Team Captain Toolkit. This toolkit will provide you with all the tools and information necessary to achieve your fundraising goal! 

First thing first, upload a photo of your buddy and a quick story of your buddy to your team’s page. After you have customized your page, encourage your friends and family to go to and register to walk with your team or make a donation. You can do this with phone calls, emails, and social media posts. Ideas of how to do this and other tips are included in the team captain toolkit.

We encourage you to read through the toolkit to make sure you are aware of deadlines, standards, and tips that you need to be successful.  All elements of the toolkit can be found in the Team Captain Corner. Have a party for your team, explore the website, watch our Buddy Walk video on YouTube and get excited!
