Green Walker
Green Walkers walk with us the day of the event but do 100% of their fundraising online. This means fundraising through email, social media, or their personal page and raising money solely through credit card donations. (Note: Previously there has been a separate registration booth at the walk for Green Walkers. For 2020 all walkers will use the main registration booth.)

Team Captain
When you sign up as a Team Captain, you create a new team. Team Captains recruit team members and assist team members in their fundraising efforts. There are three different types of teams: Community, Corporate, and Benefting Agency.

Virtual Walker
Can't commit to the walk? No worries. Virtual Walkers fundraise but are not expected to attend the Walk. Virtual Walkers can collect online donations and solicit offline donations (checks or cash) that they either mail into our office or deliver in person. 

Walker
Full fledged walkers do it all. Walkers participate in the walk and fundraise online and offline. From walking with us on March 1st to raising funds online and offline.

If you are registering as a:
