HomeWalk FAQs

 

When does registration close for HomeWalk?

Online registration will close on Friday, November 17 at 12 pm PST. You will still be able to register at the event on Saturday, November 18. On-site registration opens at 6:30 am PST.

 

If I register on the day of HomeWalk, can I still donate?

Absolutely! Please bring your donation with you to the event. Your donation will also still go towards your 2017 personal or team fundraising goals.

 

Can you sign up as a volunteer and walker/runner at the same time?

Participants cannot participate as both a volunteer and a walker/runner.

Volunteers must sign up on the HomeWalk homepage (unitedwayla.org/homewalk) via the Volunteer tab on navigation toolbar at the top.  

 

Is there an option on the HomeWalk website to sign up as a group?

There is no option on the HomeWalk website to sign up as a group. However,  you can sign up as a Team Captain and create a team. Participants who wish to join your team must sign up individually for the selected team to provide and verify personal information upon registration.

 

Can we change from walker to runner or vice versa?

Unfortunately, we are not able to make this change once participants have registered.

 

Is it free for children to participate at HomeWalk?

Participation is free for minors under the age of 17 with an accompanying registered adult, however HomeWalk memorabilia is only reserved for paid registrants. If minors under the age of 17 wish to receive memorabilia for participation they may also pay to register online or in person at the day of the event.

 

Can you waive our team registration fees?

No, sorry! The $25 registration fee helps cover the costs of the event so that 100% of the money you fundraise can go towards services, programs, and housing for our homeless neighbors. We are unable to waive registration fees in order to ensure that we are able to continue our commitment of investing 100% of the money raised by participants into services and programs to help our homeless neighbors.

 

Can you set up a team for us? How do we add team members?

We are unable to set up team for you but we can help you get there! These instructions explain how to sign up as a Team Captain and create a team. Participants must sign up individually for their team to provide and verify personal information upon registration.

 

I can’t find my team from last year’s HomeWalk. Do I have to recreate my team?

Teams do not roll over from last year’s HomeWalk. Please register yourself as a Team Captain to create a new team for HomeWalk 2017.

Is there a deadline to receive donations and fundraise?

The deadline on dollars raised to qualify for event day incentives is Nov. 17, 12 PM (PST). However, donations are accepted through out the end of the year to assure you and your team meet your goals for end of year giving.

 

 

I forgot my username. How can I retrieve my username?

If you forget your username, try testing all your email addresses. If not, you must register again with a new email address.

 

What happens to the uneaten food and snacks left over from the event?

We have coordinated delivery of any untouched, uncontaminated food from our sponsor event tents to arrive at the Downtown Women's Center located on 4th and San Pedro.

 

Is there an option on the HomeWalk website to sign up as a group?

Yes there is! Simply click the "Save and Register Another Participant" and follow the instructions. While that option is available, we do encourage all participants to register on their own so they can stay up-to-date on all things HomeWalk.
