Question 1: How should I register? As a team, individual, or make a donation?
Create a Team
You register as a team if you want to be a team captain of your own team and would like to ask others to donate to your specific page in honor of you or a loved one. You can customize this page and tell your story. All donations from family members and friends will be attributed to your page and you will earn badges for each accomplishment.
Register as an Individual
You can register as an individual if you want to attend the Walk and want to make a donation. Make sure there isn’t already a team created by a group or individual who you may want to support by adding to their team page. By registering PACF will know that you plan on attending and have made a contribution to supporting our cause.
Make a Donation
By making a donation you are letting PACF know you want to make a contribution to the Walk and don’t want to create a team, and won’t be able to attend, however still want to support.
Question 2: I would like to write a check donation. Who should I write it out to and where should it be sent?
If you would like to make a check donation it can be made out to:
Parkinson Association of Central Florida, P. O. Box 3337, Winter Park, FL 32790 - 3337
If you would like your donation to be attributed to a team please write the name on the memo line.
Question 3: Where do the funds go?
Funds raised through the Walk for Parkinson further the education, programs and research efforts for the local Parkinson community. The Parkinson Association of Central Florida is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Question 4: Do I have to register in order to Walk?
Yes, we want to know you're walking with us and need every participant to sign a standard waiver through their official registration. There is no registration fee for Walk. However, we ask every participant to make a personal donation and commit to raising funds in the fight against Parkinson's.
Question 5: Do I need to register my children for the Walk?
Yes, children should register. Parents/guardians can register children online or complete an offline registration form and sign the waiver on behalf of the child.
Question 6: Does every participant get a T-shirt?
Every registered participant who achieves the fundraising minimum of $100 will receive an official Walk for Parkinson T-shirt the day of the event.
Question 7: How do I get my offline donations to show up on my personal fundraising web page?
Donations can be made offline by sending a check or money order by mail to theParkinson Association of Central Florida post office. Be sure to include your name and team name to make sure you receive credit for the donation. Donations typically take one to two weeks to show up on your web page.
Will there be COVID-19 safety measures in place at Walk?
The health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers are our top priorities. The Walk is designed with this in mind including a venue layout that allows for physical distancing and hand sanitizer stations. PACF will continue to closely monitor Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local guidelines and make adjustments to our event-day safety protocols as needed.
Are pets, strollers, bicycles and skates allowed on Walk day?
We do allow strollers, but for everyone's safety, we discourage skateboards, bicycles, inline skates and wheelie footwear. While we all love our fur-babies, pets are not allowed in the event area of Cranes Roost. Service Animals are an exception!
What happens if it rains?
The Walk is a rain or shine event. However, in the case of severe weather, we will cancel. If this is the case, we will update our Walk homepage on or before the morning of the event.
We need volunteers! Know anyone who might be interested in helping us on the day of the event?
We need volunteers to help with set-up, clean-up, registration, water stops and so much more. All interested volunteers should contact the PACF office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
