Credit Cards are being taken this year as acceptable forms of payment for donations! Please ask a registration volunteer for more information on Walk Day.

Question: How do I earn an official JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes T-Shirt?

Answer: Each WALKER who has raised $100 or more by Walk Day will receive a T-Shirt. JDRF will have lists of the dollars raised up to the day before the event, and will add those totals to any donations that are turned in that day at registration to determine if the Walker will receive a shirt. PLEASE VISIT REGISTRATION TO RECEIVE YOUR TICKET.

Please remember that only Walkers that have raised $100 or more will receive a shirt – team donations do not count.

Question: Can I have a photo of my team taken on event day?

Answer: Yes! We will have a photographer there to take photos of your entire Walk Team, with a team sign, on Walk Day. At Rockford Park, the photos will be taken by the bleachers at the baseball diamonds. There is no set schedule for the photos, and your team can have their photo taken at any time during the event. At Silver Lake Park, please bring your team to the Registration Tent after your team completes the walk route.

Question: What can I expect on event day?

Answer: Expect a day of family fun and most importantly of everyone coming together to show their support of finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. This is your day to celebrate your hard work in raising money to find a cure!

All team captains must reserve their team table by Noon on Friday, October 17. Be sure to contact your team captain for more information and a meeting time for the team!
