GETTING STARTED FAQ:


How do I log into my account?

Click Log In or Sign Up at the top right of the PFF Walk main page at pffwalk.org

Is my username and password the same as last year?
Yes. If you have forgotten your password, click “Forgot your password?” and follow the prompts. 

What do I do if I forget my username and password?
Your username is your email address. After clicking “Forgot your password?” you will be prompted to enter your email address, and if an account with your email was found in our system, a password reset email will be sent. 

How do I start a team? 
Forming a Walk team is simple! At pffwalk.org, choose the city you will be walking in and then click “Register For This Event.” If it is your first time on the site, you will need to register and create an account. Then you will be provided the options to either Join a Team, Create a Team, or Register as a Walker. 

I tried to register as a member of a team, but I don’t see my team listed?
Your team leader may not have registered yet. Reach out to your team leader to see if they have registered, or if the team name has changed. 

Do I have to register in order to Walk?
Yes, we want to know you will be walking with us! Every walker also needs to sign a standard waiver in the registration process. Click HERE for a video walking you through the registration process step-by-step! 

Is there a registration fee for PFF Walk?
No, it is free to participate at the PFF Walk! However, we suggest that every walker make a personal donation and commit to raising funds in the fight against pulmonary fibrosis. Walkers who raise at least $100 will receive a PFF Walk t-shirt. 

Do I need to register my children for the Walk?
Yes, when you reach the registration summary screen during your own registration process you will be asked if you would like to add additional registrants. Click the “Add Additional Registrant” button to register other family members, or to register children or people without an email address as a non-fundraising participant. You can also register them later by clicking “Manage Registrations” on the left hand side of your Fundraising Dashboard. 

A family member registered me, how do I log into my fundraising dashboard?
If your family member registered you and provided your email address, you will get an email indicating that you have been registered for the PFF Walk and prompting you to change your password. Once you have updated your password, you can log into your fundraising dashboard at pffwalk.org and start fundraising! 

How can my company participate in or sponsor a Walk?
