Yes, you can register as an individual, create a team, join an existing team or register as a virtual participant if you are unable to attend. We encourage people to sign up as a team, as this seems to be more fun from what we have gathered from past participants, but we welcome individual walkers and virtual participants.
Yes! After you hit the ‘Complete Registration’ button, a new screen will give you an option at the top that says ‘register another person’. This will allow you to register additional walkers. Email addresses are not required for additional walkers, but preferred. This is ideal and preferred for registering your children who do not have their own email address.
Registering for the Walk is free, but each individual walker MUST raise $50 in order to participate in the walk; or your team needs to raise enough as a whole to cover each walker signed up ($50 x Number of Walkers on your team = Total fundraising dollars needed). Children under the age of 12 are free, but donations are appreciated.
No, each walker can raise $50 or your team as a whole may raise enough to cover all walkers.
Can’t make it? We would hate for you to miss the fun, but if for some reason you can’t attend, we appreciate your fundraising efforts on our behalf! Unfortunately, money raised is non-transferable. If you raised enough money to receive a fundraising incentive, $250+, this prize will be mailed to you upon redemption 60 days after the walk.
There is also the option to participate virtually if you are unable to attend or conditions do not permit us to have an event. To participate virtually, register online as a 'virtual participant'.
