If some of my team members register using the paper form, will they show up on my team page online?
No, only those who register online will show up on your team page. Encourage your team members to register online so you can see your fundraising thermometer grow!
I am an employee of Palmetto Health. May I pay the registration fee via payroll deduction?
Absolutely! If you are planning to walk, there is a registration/payroll deduction form just for Palmetto Health employees. Please note: if you payroll deduct, you will not show up online with a team page. Also, if you want to run in the half marathon, 5K or 10K, you’ll have to register online and pay via credit or debit card. Runners cannot payroll deduct.
How many people are needed to form a team?
Teams are composed of five or more walkers and runners.
What is expected of me if I register as a team captain?
It is all up to you. We would hope that as your team’s captain you would set a fundraising goal, encourage your team to meet that goal and help us spread the word that all funds raised will stay within our community.
Can my team include both walkers and runners?
Of course! There are some differences though: runners will receive a timing chip, have a different starting line and a different starting time. The good news is that the most important part is the same for every participant–you all are doing your part to take steps against breast cancer!
May I register multiple people with one transaction?
Sure! If you choose to register multiple people, we need your help to complete the Multiple Person Waiver Form, which can be found on the Walk Details and Race Details pages. These forms will need to be turned in when you pick up your T-shirts. If you are registering people after you have completed your registration, you must log out by clicking the log out button in the top right corner of the screen.
Where can I park the morning of the event?

May I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, NO. We love dogs (and cats!) just as much as the next person, but they are not allowed at the event.
May I bring a bag into Spirit Communications Park?
For your safety and the safety of other participants, please only bring bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” by 6” by 12”. One-gallon freezer bags are also OK. Any other bags could be subject to a security check.
Can I walk/run with a jogging stroller?
Yes, jogging strollers are allowed. We feel it’s never too early to introduce your little one to fundraising for a good cause. Parts of the course are gravel, however, so please use caution and watch your step.
Are children required to pay the registration fee?
Children 12 and older must register. Children under 12 may participate at no charge.
