Frequently Asked Questions

What is a virtual ride or walk? It’s ONE ride or walk that’s connected virtually! You can ride or walk your way on a stationary bike, treadmill, a track with your team, through the streets of a city or your neighborhood, or on a solo trail. Go for a run, walk, ride or hike while keeping your distance from others. Send us a picture of you in action and we’ll post it to our Facebook event page. 

How much of the money will go to PCRC? PCRC is a 501(c)3 organization, making all donations received tax-deductible. We work very hard to keep production expenses as low as possible by soliciting sponsorships, donations and discounts for supplies. We’re grateful to our sponsors who have helped offset these costs so that every dollar you raise goes directly to programing.

What is the fundraising requirement? There is no requirement, however, we do encourage every participant to commit to raising at least $100. This is in addition to any registration fees. 

Refunds? We are sorry but we do not offer refunds. If you are unable to participate, we’re happy to convert your registration to a donation. 

When Can I register to participate? Registration is open from today until the 21st.  

When will A Chance to Shine take place? You can start and complete your ride or walk between Saturday June 6th and Sunday, June 21st. Complete the distance at any time you choose between those dates.
