Do teams have to organize an actual event?
No, teams are not required to organize an in-person walk; it is up to each team to decide what is
safe for them and in their best interest.
Do you have some ideas for what teams could do for their walk?
Sure! Team events could include walking around your neighborhood, laps around a local high
school track, a family walk in Garden of the Gods, or a stroll around Palmer park or Fox Run

How do people get a t-shirt if they join our team after the t-shirt cut-off date?
We will NOT order extra shirts this year, so if anyone registers for your team after July 22 they
will not get a t-shirt. Please encourage all your friends and family to join before July 22!
Will there be prizes this year?
YES, we love prizes! We have changed things up a bit this year and have added Weekly Team
Challenges. Be sure to check your email and our Facebook page each week to join in the fun. We
will also be awarding prizes on August 15 to our top three fundraising teams, our team with the
most registered walkers, most creative walk idea, and the best yard display or start/finish line and
of course, “door” prizes.
