You can also enter the code in the email at the bottom of the screen after you click the “Register” button.

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, you can request your user name and a password reset. In the upper right hand corner of the website in the login area, just click the link called: Forgot My Password.
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. You may want to ask all team members to do this as well if they are not participating in individual incentives.
I am having trouble uploading a photo to my personal or team profile page.
