Q. How do I get a walk t-shirt?

A. Your walk registration fee does not include a t-shirt. All walkers that raise or donate $50 by April 17, 2023, will receive an official 2023 For Pete’s Sake, Walk t-shirt. We have tools and tips to make it possible for our walkers to reach this fundraising goal.

Q. Can I walk Virtually?

A. Yes, you can Walk Anywhere! And we encourage it. If you can’t make the date, aren’t comfortable in crowds, or live too far away, please join us in spirit! Click “register” and look for the virtual option. You’ll still get all the personal fundraising incentives, including the official For Pete’s Sake, Walk t-shirt if you raise $50 or more! You can walk anywhere you’d like between April 22nd and May 6th and your contribution will help our overall fundraising goal.
