What is the deadline to register to walk?
Multi-day walker registration will close on July 15th. One day walker registration will remain open until we reach capacity of 50 walkers per day.
What is the deadline to register to crew?
Crew slots will remain open until all positions are filled. Register early as we anticipate crew positions will fill quickly (some spots are “pre-assigned” to returning or experienced crew members.)
Do I have to pay all of the fees when I register? Registration, Accommodations, Meals and Shirt Fees?
To ensure individuals are committed to participating in the event weekend, all fees (registration, shirt and accommodations) need to be paid to complete your registration and secure your spot in the Immediate Impact Breast Cancer Walk.
You can sign-up to “hold” your spot on the event for 30 days without paying the fees, or until we reach capacity. Until all fees are paid, however, you will be unable to collect online donations – your donation page goes “live” when all fees are paid. In the interim, you can collect donation checks. These donations will not be credited to your account until your registration is completed.
Are my registration and event fees tax deductible?
Unfortunately no, fees paid by participants are not tax deductible. The IRS considers entry fees for charitable races and walks are considered an entertainment fee and since you are receiving services and goods (meals, overnight accommodations, etc) for these payments, they are not tax deductible.
What is the $80 Registration Fee for?
Registration fees help to offset event expenses: snacks, hydration, gas, vehicle rental, insurance, etc.
How are the Camping Fees calculated?
Each night of camping is $125. Breakdown of fees:
$90 per night which includes dinner
$35 for your breakfast and box lunch
If I cannot participate can I get a refund?
Registration and event fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Can I share donations with another walker?
What are the “Box Lunches” on the event going to be like?
The box lunches will be provided by Foodniks http://www.foodniks.com/ we will also have a variety of chips, various beverages (sodas, juices, etc.), fresh fruit and coffee available at lunch. Participants will be able to select salad or sandwich option for each day.
Do I have to get a box lunch if I am not camping?
No, you can bring your own lunch. Bring your lunch in a well marked container or bag to be taken by our route support crew, or plan to carry it you.
