Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create my team in the registration system?

Click here to begin the registration process. Begin by filling out your information. When you get to the "Group Selection" page, check "Create a New Group" and type in your team name. Enter your team discount code before finishing (if you do not have your code, contact Stephanie Allan at sallan@chfrichmond.org).

How do I create my team's fundraising page?

Use the link in your registration confirmation email or click here to get started. Click "Start a Fundraiser". Fill out the form with your contact information, and name your fundraiser using your team name. Set your fundraising goal. We encourage you to set it to $500, but you can certainly set it even higher! In the description section tell people why you have created your team and why you need their support. Upload a picture that helps explain your team and your focus, and click on the green "Create Fundraiser" box to finish the process. Now you have your very own fundraising page and then you can email that link to your family and friends and ask for donations to support your efforts as you walk/run to help the 60,000 children served at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

How do other people join my team?

Tell your friends and family members that you want to join your team the name you picked for your team when registering. When they get to the "Group Selection" page in the registration process, they will search for your team name and join that existing group. Don't forget to give them your team's discount code!
