FAQ: Teams

If you have any questions you don't see addressed here, please email

How do I register to WALK?

If you want to start or join a team (or walk by yourself), you can register online by clicking the Register button on the top menu, next to the logo. The registration process will take you about 5 minutes, so you can do it while the coffee's perking. Note: When setting up your username, please do NOT use spaces.

Do I walk with my team?

You normally would at least begin the WALK with your team, but depending on fitness levels and pace, you may end up spreading out along the route during the WALK.

Is there a registration fee for the WALK? Is the fee for teams or individuals?

There is no registration fee for teams as a whole, but instead it works on an individual basis.

  • If you are 18+ years of age and raise less than $150, the registration fee is $25.
  • If you are 12-17 years of age, and you raise less than $75, the registration fee is again $25.
  • If you are under 12 years of age, the registration fee is waived.

On average, walkers raise about $250 each, and most donors give around $40-$50, so it's a reachable goal!

I am planning to attend the WALK with my family. Do we all need to register?

The short answer is: yes. It would help us get a better handle on how many WALKers to expect on WALK Day if you could create a separate registration profile for each family member. You could route them all to the same email address or even post all donations under one family member's name for efficiency's sake, but each person should have their own profile.

How do I change my team name?

Note that this can only be performed by the participant who started the team (the Team Captain).

  • Log in to your fundraising centre
  • At the top of the page, click the "Team" tab
  • On the left, click "5 - Edit Team Info".

Be sure to click "Save" when you're finished!

Can people on my team walk different distances?

Definitely! Everyone who joins a team selects their own route distance during registration. You can have people walking multiple distances on the same team.

Oops... I gave (or my donor gave) to my team, instead of to my personal account. Can the donation be moved?

Yes! Please email us at and let us know a) the donor's name b) the amount of the donation, and c) the name of the participant you'd like it moved to. We'll make that change for you on our end.

In the future, make sure that the link you're sending out to donors is for your personal page, not your team page. You can check this by looking at your page -- does it show your name at the top? If so, you're in the right place. All donors should make sure that they see the participant's name at the top of the fundraising page before clicking "Donate".
