Steps for the last 7 calendar days are posted along with the number of active minutes. Send a request to Gail (gail3511@gmail.com) or myself (Susan Reed, greed@chorus.net)) and we will send you an invitation. Follow the instructions on the email, log into your dashboard and click on the “community” tab to see TEAMSurvivor Madison (WI). Click on that to see the members and their steps!

Why Not Ask!

As an all volunteer, member-driven, and member-led organization, we look to you to help brainstorm or solve a current need. The best way to find out if you can help, is to ask. Current needs for the organization:

Business services for the TSM office. Do you know a local business/data/internet provider that may be willing to donate or offer reduced rate services? Does your employer offer something like this to non-profits? This would allow TSM to set-up business operations at our office.


If you have leads on any of the above, please email TEAMSurvivor with details. THANKS!
