I would like to pay by cash or check, not credit card. How do I do that?
If individuals would like to send a check or cash instead of paying online, you can enter their information on your donation page. It will then get processed and represented on your home page. Money orders and checks can be sent to PO Box 564 Fort Washington PA 19034 made payable to Brave Hearts for Strong Minds (please note the runner’s name on the check) or bring them with you to registration on the day of the event. Thank you!
Can I bring my children?
Yes, absolutely! However, they MUST be registered. You can do so here. There will entertainment for kids during the event as well as snacks and beverages. Games are free but be sure to bring a few extra dollars for raffles and other activities.
Do I have to run/walk?
Not at all! The walk is a casual family friendly walk around the site but attendees are more than welcome to wait for the group to return and partake in the food, games, and entertainment while you wait.
Where do donations go?
Funds raised are used to support education funds for a chosen family that has lost a parent. After each year, a new family is (or families are) chosen and the previous family is asked to help setup and run the event to “pay it forward”. If you know of a family that could benefit from our organization, please have them apply by clicking here. We will be sure to contact them once the application is received.
How long is the walk?
The walk is 1.5 miles. You can double the course or even triple it if you like the exercise!
I cannot walk but I would like to fundraise, is that possible?
Yes, although we will miss you on the course! You may register as a Participant and use the fundraising page that is created during registration to collect donations from your friends, family, and co-workers and anyone else interested. You can pick up your shirt on race day or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pickup of the shirt.
Will there be bathrooms, food and water?
Bathrooms, food and water will all be available on the course.
Will there be parking?
Parking will be available free of charge.
What time does it start?
Registration will begin at 9:00am and the walk will begin promptly at 10:00am. After the walk you are free to enjoy the food, music, and games until 1:00pm. You can register online here.
Do I have to register online? Can I pay at the door?
There will be a limited number of walk up sign ups available. You can do so but we cannot promise that you will receive a T-shirt or food. We highly recommend signing up online which you can do so here.
What if it rains?
We are going to hold the event, rain or shine! So bring an umbrella if the weather is bad but let’s hope for sunshine!
