Make sure your team knows when and where you’ll all be on CNOY Day. Set a firm arrival time and make sure every team member knows what is required of them (bring your phone, extra warm coats, etc.). If possible, set a time to leave on your walk together, even if you’re walking different distances. Your main goal is to keep people connected and cared for, so make sure everyone is happy before heading out on CNOY Day.
Make sure your team has your cell number on CNOY Day – print off a sheet for everyone with instructions. This will let your team connect/call/locate/harass you all day as required... which is good! You don’t want any of them loitering around the starting line all day like lost puppies.
Snap lots of pictures before and after you start walking. (You could frame the best image and send it to your teammates with a handwritten ‘thank you’ note.)
Gather your team and celebrate your hard work and team effort after CNOY is over. That could mean a snack, a reunion BBQ, or that thing where you jump in the air and high five. Cheer your teammates as they come in, keep in contact with each team member, thank them for their help, and tell them you want them back next year!
