Walk for Life Fundraising Information
How far is the Walk?
Our Walk for Life is an easy 1.5 mile! It's the most important distance you will ever walk!
What if I can't walk on that day or at one of the locations?
If you can't walk on the day of our event, no problem! You can walk any day, anytime, anyplace - it still counts! Walk around your block, push a baby stroller with a friend, go roller-skating for life, walk to your mailbox 10 times... it all counts! Prizes will only be awarded to Walkers who are in attendance the day of the Walk. If you ordered a t-shirt, please contact Crossroads to arrange a pickup time.
What if it rains?
How do I get donors/supporters?
During the online registration process, a Fundeasy web page will be created for you. You’ll be able to manage your page and profile. You will also be able to spread the word about your fundraising efforts on social media. The best way to get donors is to simply ask or e-mail everyone you know... family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, people at your gym, your clubs, and even people you know out of town! When you ask "Will you sponsor me as I Walk for Life?" 9 out of 10 people will say "yes". Please check out our "Steps to Success" for other helps for getting sponsors.
Is it a per-mile pledge?
All pledges are "flat" amounts, meaning the donation or pledge offered is the total amount. There is no per-mile fee or cost. All donations/pledges are tax deductible, and sponsors will receive a printed donation receipt if their mailing address is provided to Crossroads.
Do I have to collect the money?
If you register online, your sponsors can pay online using your own personal FundEasy fundraising web page. You can send them an e-mail asking them to donate and directing them to your page using an internet link.
If you choose to use a paper pledge form to collect your pledges, please bring it on Walk Day with your pledge form to turn in at the Registration Pavilion.
Can I bring my dog?
Please remember there will be lots of people around of all ages. Pets need to be on a leash and well-socialized. This makes it nice for your pet, you and others at the event. Also please remember that you will need to clean up after your pet, so please bring necessary supplies.
Can I register as part of a team?
No. We will not be registering teams nor awarding any prizes this year for top teams; only for individuals.
Do I have to belong to a Church group?
You do not need to belong to a Church group. We want everyone to be able to participate, and there is absolutely no set requirement to walk or run other than a heart to save babies and change lives!
Where can I get more pledge sheets if I run out?
You can download & print a copy from this site under resources or by clicking here!
If I've registered online, am I also able to raise funds online and post pledges manually?
Absolutely! After you've registered, you will create your personal FundEasy web page by following simple instructions. Registering online is easy and fast, and a great way to raise pledges! To register, click here.
How do I print my online donors?
The Donor tab on your FundEasy page will give you a .pdf version of your list of donors. You can print your list from this tab. You must be logged into your FundEasy page to see this option.
How do I get to my FundEasy page?
