How it Works: You can walk as an individual, a team of 5 or more (friends, business, school groups, clubs, organizations, sorority/fraternity members, etc.) or a family.  All pre-registered walkers will receive a T-shirt. Teams/families will have their name on a bib. Each walker will pay an entrance fee and be expected to raise a specified dollar amount.  The entrance fee will be part of the specified amount.  If that amount is not raised, the walker makes up the difference.
