FAQS


Event


When do I participate?

Early bird registration begins April 5th, but the main event starts Friday, May 14, 2021 and runs through Monday, May 31, 2021. 

You can begin to participate and log miles from the time you register by walking, running, or biking in the location of your choice! 

Additional activities and experiences open up May 14th. 


How do I sign up?

Click the "REGISTER" button on the main page. If you haven't already, you'll need to create an account with One Cause using an email or social media account. Then follow the prompts to join a team, start a team, or register as an individual. Enter your information and submit the registration form to get started! 

If you are planning to register your family (husband, kids, grandparents, etc.) you'll want to do it when you register yourself. 

After you complete your own information there will be a place where you can add a secondary registrant. If the secondary registrant would like their own fundraising page, please have an email for them ready.
