FAQ

We're so glad you'll be joining us for the 15th Annual Walk for Autism-Virginia!  Please read the FAQs and How-to's below, and let us know if you have any other questions!  Contact walk@asnv.org with any questions.

Do I need to register to participate?

Everyone must register if they wan to attend the event for the activities and/or walk.If you want to only support financially and not attend the event, then you can provide a donation and not register for the event.  

What is a fundraising page and how do I create one?

Everyone that registers for the event has an opportunity to add a donation, create an individual fundraising page, and/or create or join a team fundraising page. If you create an individual fundraising page, then others that donate or register for the event can have their registration fee and/or donation go to support your individual fundraising page. If you create a team fundraising page, then others can have their registration and/or donation go to support that team's fundraising page. 

The individual fundraising page shows one person's efforts in fundraising. The team fundraising page collects all of the individual fundraising efforts under one umbrella of a team fundraising. For instance, if I created an individual fundraising page and tagged it to a team page, when someone donates to my individual page, the amount they donate shows under both the individual page and the team page. 

A very typical and popular way to fund raise for the walk is to create a team page. Simply create a fun team name and register your family, company or school. You can then ask people to either donate to your Team, join your team and come to the walk, or join your team as a fundraiser (these people are registered for the walk, but they can also use their own networks to raise money for ASNV on behalf of your team through their individual fundraising pages).

For our purposes, a team is set up when someone creates a "Team Fundraiser" during the registration process. Your friends and family can then choose to either promote your team, (i.e. "Help Support Team Wagner") or they can join your team and fund raise individually (i.e. "I am trying to raise $300 for ASNV on behalf of Team Wagner.") This individual fundraiser's totals will also be included in your team's fundraising goal. For a step-by-step guide to registering your Team, CLICK HERE

Do registration fees count towards my team total?

Yes, but they may not show up right away.  During the registration process, participants will be asked if they want their registration fee to count toward a team.  A drop down menu will provide a list of teams they can choose from.  After the registration is completed, we have to go in and actually apply the fee to the team total.  This will be done on a daily basis. If you have a question or think something is missing, please email walk@asnv.org.

How do I register for the walk?

To register for the Walk, click on the Sign Up button and complete the registration information.  You will able to register more than one person and for each person you will be able to choose a t-shirt size and choose what team or fundraising page (if any) you’d like your registration fee to count toward.

How much money do I have to raise? 

There is NO fundraising minimum, so set your goal to whatever you feel comfortable with! 

Are there prizes?

YES!  Prizes will be announced soon, but we award prizes for the team that raises the most money, the biggest team, and the team with the best team spirit! In addition, there are recognition levels for teams who raise $500, $1000 and $2000.

If I'm asking people to donate, should I send them to my individual page or my team's page?

Unless you  have created an individual fundraising page, we recommend that you just have everyone mark that their registration fees/donation to to your team's fundraising page. Usually teams find it simpler to have it all in one place. If someone does donate to an individual page, that donation amount WILL be counted in the team's total. One idea for maximizing profits is to have different individuals create individual pages and then compete to see who can raise the most money for their team page. 

I still can't figure this out. Who should I contact?
