Family or friends are attending an in-person walk. I cannot attend the in-person walk, but I still want to walk on my own (e.g. in my neighborhood or community). Which location should I register for?
If you do not plan to attend one of our in-person walks, choose Individual or Small Group Run/Walk for your location. You can still participate as a member of your family's or friend's team from a different location.

I accidentally registered twice. Can I get one of the fees back?
Currently, users are restricted to only being able to register and create a fundraising account ONCE per email address. If you accidentally register twice under two different email addresses, the registration fee cannot be refunded.

What if someone wants to sponsor or donate to me or my team, but doesn't want to register for the walk?  How do they find my page?

The quickest and easiest way for family and friends to find your personal fundraising page is for your to share your personal fundraising page link.  You can find this link when you log into your personal fundraising page: Click "Fundraising Tools," and then click "Copy My Page URL."  You can then paste and send that URL to your family and friends so they can easily find your page. 

If you have not sent your URL to someone who wants to donate toward your fundraising goal, they can find your personal fundraising page by navigating to the Search bar in the top left-hand corner.  There, they can type in your name/your team's name, and click your name/your team's name when it appears.

How do I set-up a Facebook fundraiser that is linked with my personal fundraising thermometer?
Please see the How to Set Up a Facebook Fundraiser guide. A Facebook fundraiser must be set up from your Qgiv personal fundraising page following the steps outlined in the guide in order for the fundraiser to be linked with your fundraising thermometer.  If a fundraiser is created directly through Facebook, the funds raised will still go to the CJD Foundation, but they will not go toward Strides for CJD 2022 or be added to your fundraising thermometer. 

Can I take pictures at the event?
Absolutely, please do! We encourage you to share your pictures on social media. It's a great way to promote awareness about CJD. We may also want to use them on our website.
