5. I am concerned that I might not be able to raise the required funds. Will I be able to do it?
Even if you've never raised money before, our materials and strategies will make it easy for you to solicit and collect sponsorships from friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, and others. Experience has shown that it is not only possible, but enjoyable, to set and reach your goals. Please refer to the sample letters found on your personal fundraising page center, that explains the programs the Walk supports, and you will be surprised to see how quickly friends, family, and co-workers will respond to your request to help this wonderful cause. Just remember to make it personal as well, as you want them to know that they are sponsoring YOU and YOUR efforts! And, as many companies offer charitable donation matching programs, make sure to ask your sponsors to check with their employers, as it will help you meet your goal ever more quickly.
 
6. Is the Walk only for those who have lost a loved one?
No! The Walk is designed as a time of reflection and moving forward for anyone.  We walk to move forward in grief and begin the journey of living with loss in our lives. Come join us as we walk side-by-side with others and remember those we have loved and lost. We will share, remember and “say their name” as we make a casual 3-mile walking loop, starting from Seven Presidents Park, down the Long Branch boardwalk and back.
 
7. Do You Walk Alone or as a Team?
Either! Participants can walk alone or create their own team to walk along the beautiful Long Branch boardwalk.  
 
8. I have never participated in a walk before. Will I be able to finish the walk?
Absolutely!  There’s no rush. This is a casual walk. Come stroll along the boardwalk with us.
 
9. Is there a refund/exchange policy?
Yes. If a donation was made accidentally or for the wrong amount, simply make us aware of the issue and we will be happy to make any necessary refunds, changes or corrections. Race registration fees are not refundable.
