The World Partnership Walk seeks champions in corporations, public organizations, small business and schools to support Aga Khan Foundation Canada. Organizers of the May 25 walk (see main story) want groups of participants to sign up for the Team Challenge Program, to raise funds, build awareness and compete for awards.

"Competition between corporate departments, local service clubs, community groups and other teams builds morale while getting results that make a world of difference," promotional material for the walk says.

To form a team, visit the walk's website, go to Online Registration, and follow the instructions. Whoever creates the team and registers its name becomes the captain, keeping up to date on the online performance of the team and its members. The idea is to build the team's size, gather sponsorships, and spread the word about the foundation and the walk.

Those who register at least five team members and raise $100 each by May 10 will receive a World Partnership Walk T-shirt with their team name. If you can't participate in the walk, organizers encourage you to sponsor someone who is participating.

Aga Khan Foundation also has volunteer opportunities available, to help with the walk or otherwise raise awareness. Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in the world, strengthen communications skills, learn new skills and make new friends, organizers say.
