  • If you have raised your funds already and are not bringing additional donations to the walk, all you need to do is give your name to the check-in volunteers so they can mark you as attended.  (Captains or Family members can check in multiple pre-registered walkers if there is no money being exchanged). 

Not Registered Yet?:

No problem. You can register online here or you can report to the "Walk On" table and sign up!
