Frequently Asked Questions

Do I receive an event t-shirt when I register?

All walkers who register and self-donate $20 at the time of registration will receive a Hope Walks Long Sleeve T-Shirt.

Where can I pick up my t-shirt?

Thank you to everyone who came and picked up your t-shirts at our curbside t-shirt pickup. If you were unable to join us, don’t worry! Your shirts will be mailed to you. In order to receive your t-shirt in the mail prior to Virtual Hope Walks, you must register by Thursday, October 1st at 2:00PM. If you register after that time, your shirt will be shipped to you post-walk.  T-shirt sizes are first come, first serve. 

Do you need volunteers to help with the Virtual Hope Walks?

Since the 2020 Hope Walks has gone completely virtual, we will not be needing any volunteers at the virtual event. The only way to participate is to register to walk.

Now that Hope Walks is virtual, I am worried about fundraising. Do you have any tips on how to raise money during these difficult times?

We realize requesting support from your network may seem like a daunting task, but there are resources and tools available to make you successful. Be sure to check out our Virtual Fundraising Tips, or our Virtual Fundraising Toolkit.
