We're so glad you'll be joining us for the 14th 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 Joe Lintott with any questions - (703) 495-8444 or director@asnv.org

Do I need to register to participate?

Everyone who will be participating in the Walk must register. 

Will there be a 5k Run this year?

No, we will be focusing on the Family Festival and will not be holding a separate 5k Run this year.

How do I create a fundraising page?

An individual fundraising page is automatically created for each registrant.

The best way to fundraise for ASNV is to create a "Team." A Team is a family, group of friends or a company who would like to raise money to improve the lives of individuals affected by autism. 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).

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 fundraise 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.

NOTE*** After you set up a fundraising team, WE must go in and manually add your page or team name to the list that registrants can choose from (see following question) – RunSignUp does not automatically do this for us.  This will be done on a daily basis. Once your team name is added to the list, your family and friends who register will have their fee count toward your fundraising goal. We will also add your registration fee(s) towards your team goal.

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 director@asnv.org.

How do I register for the Walk?

To register for the Walk , click on the SignUp 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 usually 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 and your team members are competing against each other to raise the most money for the team, we recommend that you just send everyone to your team's 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. 

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

If you have questions about the registration or team set-up process, please email Joe Lintott at director@asnv.org
