While there is no registration fee, we encourage all registered walkers to raise funds on behalf of the Walk. Remember, 100% of donations go to research.

Go to the Registration booth if you need to do any of the following: 

Any of our Registrars can help you on the day of the Walk. Go to any seated Registrar; there are no special lines; make only one stop to pick up shirts and turn in donations. All walkers are registered as individuals, even if they are part of a team -- there is only one envelope per walker so you will be sure to get credit as the fundraiser. We recommend that you allow extra time to go through Registration.


Join Us on the Plaza of the Today Show on Friday morning, April 25th. Click here for more information.
