Additional walkathon information/FAQ:

What is the walkathon route?

The route is a 5 kilometer (just over 3 mile) walk through the Laurelhurst neighborhood Click here to see the route!

What is peer fundraising?

Peer fundraising is a great way to spread awareness for HACCM’s mission and to help us reach our fundraising goal! You do not have to register as a walker to participate in peer fundraising. Simply fill out this form, and we will create a fundraising page for you. Then, share the link with your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, and anyone else! You will have a unique link that these people can donate through, and all of the proceeds will go directly to support HACCM.

For additional details about peer fundraising, please contact HACCM.

What is group entry?

Groups consist of any team made up of 5 or more individuals. You can register with your sports team, your Greek dance group, your walking club, your cousins, etc. Each team will need a team leader and a team name to start. The team leader will fill out this form to register a team. Then, when each individual registers, make sure to enter your team name to get the discounted registration price. All teams who participate in the peer fundraising opportunity will compete against each other: the team who collects the most pledges will get a pizza party!

For additional details about group entry, please contact HACCM.
