Thank you for registering your team for the 2019 Columbus Buddy Walk®!  We are very excited that your team will be joining us on Sunday, September 29, 2019 for a day full of fun and excitement. Remind your friends and family to mark their calendars. Whether this is your first walk or your 18th walk, please be sure to download and print the Fundraising Toolkit. This toolkit will provide you with all the tools and information necessary to achieve your fundraising goal! 

First thing first, upload a photo of your buddy and a quick story of your buddy to your team’s page. After you have customized your page, encourage your friends and family to go to and register to walk with your team or make a donation. You can do this with phone calls, emails, and social media posts. Ideas of how to do this and other tips are included in the team captain toolkit.

We encourage you to read through the toolkit to make sure you are aware of deadlines, standards, and tips that you need to be successful. Have a party for your team, explore the website, watch our Buddy Walk video on YouTube and get excited!
