The Day of the Event

On the day of the event please proceed to the registration tables to check in and receive your participant kit.  There will be lots of volunteers wearing event T-shirts that will guide you to the registration area from the various parking lots nearby. There will be an official start for the walk at 10:30 am, an hour and a half after registration opens. We are hoping to get as many walkers as possible to start their walk at 10:30 am.  However feel free to start your walk anytime after you have registered, the main purpose is to participate for a good cause and enjoy a nice walk!

Tips for Raising Money

Don't forget to ask everyone you meet to support you in your walk. Ask them for $10 or $20 - small amounts can make a difference! Ask not only your co-workers, family and friends, but your hair dresser or barber, your mail carrier, your kids' teachers, your clients, your baker, your favorite store owners and others you interact with regularly. See DoJiggy's Participant Fundraising Library for fundraising ideas and tips, sample letters, a detailed User Guide to the Participant Control Panel, and more!
