How to Register


This year, we are offering two options for registering for the Walk, based on whether or not you want to fundraise:


  • Register for the Walk - No Fundraising: simply fill out the registration form, pay a $5 registration fee, and you’ll be registered for our 2023 Walk. With this option, you will not need to create an account or a fundraising page, but you will be fully registered and able to participate in the Walk. You can do this online by clicking the button below, or by filling out a paper form and sending it to our office.  This is the simplest way to register for the Walk, perfect for anyone who wants to Walk, but isn’t interested in the extra stuff! 

  • Register for the Walk - Fundraising: if you would like to raise money to support our work in the community, this option is a great choice - for both individuals and teams! When you click the button below, you will be sent to a different Walk website. There, you will need to create an account,  fill out the registration form, and pay your $5 fee. You will also be asked set a fundraising goal and personalize your individual or team fundraising page. Through this site, you’ll be able to send fundraising emails, monitor your fundraising progress with a fundraising thermometer, and invite loved ones to join your team. If you don’t want to fundraise, you can either use the “no fundraising” option, or simply set your fundraising goal at $5 — which you’ll meet with your registration fee! This is a great option for teams and anyone else who wants to compete to raise the most money, have the most members, or simply to challenge themselves.
