Early registration will be available until Monday, July 29 and will allow you to fundraise for your registration fee. All participants will need to raise a minimum of $85 by July 29 in order to walk.
Late registration will open at 4:00pm on Monday, July 29 and $95 will be due upon registration.
If I participated last year, will my information be saved in the system?
Yes, certain personal details from your account last year will carry over to this year. The system will remember your name, email, password, address and contact information. However, it will not remember your team association or information.
If you are a returning participant, enter your email address on the Registration Home Page and then click Tab. The system will recognize your account and request your previous password. If you forgot your password, click on Forgot Password? to reset it. The system will also carry your information if you registered with Facebook. If you forgot your password for the Facebook login, you will need to reset your password on the Facebook site then return to log in on chocwalk.org.
If you are a returning team, you will need to create a brand new team again this year as none of this information will carry over. The first person that registers will need to create the team name, goal, type, etc. and from there team members can search the team name when registering to join. If you would like a copy of your donors or teammates from last year, email us at email@example.com and we would be happy to assist you.
Why do you ask for my address during registration?
Your address is required during our registration process as we use this information to mail post CHOC Walk prizes. CHOC Walk prizes including Disneyland® Resort Park Hopper® tickets will be sent directly to the address provided by the participant at the time of registration during the month of November 2019. Prizes will not be sent to P.O. Boxes. It is the responsibility of the walker/participant to update their address should they move.
What does "Goal Amount" mean?
During registration, you are asked to enter a goal amount for your CHOC Walk account and/or team account. This is the fundraising goal that you set for yourself or your team to appear on your fundraising page. This is the number you aim to strive for during your CHOC Walk fundraising, but you will not be held accountable for this amount and it can be changed at any time in your Fundraising Dashboard.
Do I need to pay a fee to participate in the CHOC Walk?
All participants ages 3 and above will need to raise a minimum of $85 in order to walk in the CHOC Walk. We do encourage participants to fundraise for their participation fee, with no fee due during early registration (February - July 29).
Late registration will begin at 4:00pm on July 29 and $95 will be due upon registration. All early registration participants will need to have $85 in their account by this time.
Can I have my check-in materials shipped to me vs. checking in?
Yes, you are able to choose to have your t-shirt and wristband mailed to you instead of coming to our physical check-in location. On the second registration screen, there is a section titled "Registration and shipping options". When you select "YES" to pay your $85 registration fee now, you will have the option to add on the $10 shipping fee to have your materials mailed to the address provided. $95 must be paid at the end of registration in order to choose the shipping option.
This option will only be available until July 15, 2019.
How do I create or join a team?
On the bottom of the second registration page, there is a section titled "Create or join a team". To join a team, begin to type the team name in the search bar that says "Create or search your team name". A list of team names with similar letters will pop up below so you can select the appropriate team. You are also able to click "View all teams" to see a list of all teams currently registered. If you cannot find your team, check to make sure you have the correct spelling or contact the team captain. You can always add yourself to a team after you finish registering, so be sure to check you have the correct details before creating a new team.
To create a team, type your preferred team name in the search bar that says "Create or search your team name" and click "Create" on the right. You will then set your team's fundraising goal, URL (the text that will go after your website link chocwalk.org/'teamnamehere'), the type of team you are, and if you are connected to any other larger teams.
Can I register other people?
On the third registration page, you are asked if you would like to register another member. Here you can register a child, spouse or friend for the CHOC Walk.
If you choose "Add user to my account": you will be linking someone to all your personal details (this is ideal for a child or spouse). They will be added under your email address and will use your same credentials to log on to the website, however, they will have their own fundraising page should they choose to utilize it. You will need to choose their fundraising goal, t-shirt size, and if you plan to pay for their registration or shipping at this time.
If you choose "Register user with their own account": you will be registering someone else but will NOT be adding them to your account (ideal for friends or coworkers). You will be asked to enter their email address, goal, t-shirt size and can choose to pay for their registration or shipping. They will then receive an email that someone has registered them for the CHOC Walk, and will only need to click a link to set their password and begin fundraising.
***You can also register additional participants AFTER you finish registering by visiting the "Info" tab on your Fundraising Dashboard. Simply log on to chocwalk.org with your email and password to access your Fundraising Dashboard.
Can I make one credit card donation for multiple Walkers?
