The fundraising deadline is Monday, April 14, 2014. To honor our participants' commitments and preserve the Chapter's financial integrity, we ask all participants to meet the fundraising minimum of $1,500 prior to Day 1 of Challenge Walk.
We want everyone to have a safe and memorable weekend. Safety is our number one priority. We ask all Walkers follow these safety guidelines:
All participants must be 14 years or older by February 28, 2014 to participate as a walker. If a walker is under 18 years of age, a special Minor Waiver must be completed, signed, notarized, and brought with you to registration. All children under 18 must have a parent/guardian walking with them at all times.
All participants will be issued Walker credentials at check-in that must be worn during the entire event. The credentials allow you access to route support, rest stops and entry into the banquet room for meals.
No pets are allowed on the Challenge Walk route except registered service animals. Documentation from a veterinarian is required for a service animal's participation.
All participants are required to check in every day at the finish line. If you need to leave the route at anytime, you must notify a member of the NMSS staff.
Each day the route will open and close at specified times. Any Walker who has not completed the course by the closing time will be picked up and transported to the finish line or Wild Dunes. The route times will be published at the event.
The Challenge Walk will take place rain or shine. Please be prepared with appropriate clothing.
