Frequently Asked Questions

What are my registration options?

You can register as a 5K runner, an individual, start your own team or join an existing team.  When you register, you will first enter your personal information.  When you proceed to the next step, you will have the option to register as an individual, start a team or join a team.  During this step you can also enter additional registrants by selecting the green “Add Another Registrant” button.   When you proceed to the next step you will have the option of adding a donation as part of the registration.  Please review your cart to confirm the correct number of registrants, shirt sizes and any optional items selected before finalizing your registration and entering payment.  After completing the registration you will receive a confirmation email for each person registered, a receipt for registration and a credit card receipt.

How much does registration cost?

Registration for the 5K is $35 and includes a t-shirt and "swag bag".  Registration for the Walk & Festival is free, although Team Captains are asked to give a $21 donation to start a team. This helps cover the cost of using this beautiful new website.

I would like to start a team for the Festival & 5K, but the requested donation would cause a hardship, what can I do?

Please contact executivedirector@dsaco.org. Your information will be kept confidential, but we would like to assist you in registering your team.

I did not complete my registration. How can I finish my registration at a later time?

An email was sent to your attention with a code and a URL to allow you to restart the registration.  If you click on the URL it will take you back to Step 2 of registration; please confirm the data entered and continue your registration.  You can also enter the code in the email at the bottom of the screen after you hit the blue “Register” button.  If you no longer have the email, please send a message to support@ds-connex.org indicating that you need your "start registration code" and include your name, email and the name of the walk event for which you are registering. 

I tried to sign in, but I do not know my user name and password. How do I get this information?

When you registered for the walk, you were emailed a registration letter.  This letter contains both your user name and password.  If you no longer have the email, please send a message to support@ds-connex.org indicating you need your user name and password and include the name of the walk event for which you are registering.

Can I change my user name and password to something I can easily remember?

Yes; sign in and go to your profile page.  From your profile page select *Login and hit enter.  You can then change your user name and/or password.

I have created a team. If someone donates through my child’s page, rather than the team page, will their donation count towards both my child’s personal goal & our team goal as well?

If someone donates to your child's page then the funds will be counted towards their individual total and also the team totals.  

If you would like donors to only see the team page, you need to go to your child’s personal profile page and set the “Public profile page” to NO.  You can do this by sliding the toggle switch under this field from YES to NO.  

What should I do if nothing happens when I try to upload a photo to my personal and/or team profile page?

The image is probably too large to upload.  If the image is over 3MB you will need to reduce the size of the image to complete the upload.  Please read the instructions found in the "How to manage your team profile page" under the HELP tab above. The ds-connex support team is also available at support@ds-connex.org.
