VisionWalk is a completely FREE event!
We do not require a pledge per mile or entrance fee. While participants
are under no obligation to FFB, we do suggest a minimum donation of $100
There is no age requirement. When you
navigate through the registration process you will have to check a box
to electronically sign a waiver.
In addition, there is no required size
to form a team. Teams can be comprised of 2 members to 2,000. We welcome
teams of all shapes and sizes!
All participants, please check in at the Registration Tent, even if you have pre-registered on the website.
If you have donations with you, please turn them in at the Registration Tent as soon as you arrive. Our great volunteers will help you fill out a registration form and mark down your donation collection. **Please convert all cash into checks before arriving at the Walk.
Everyone who raises $100 or more will receive an official 2012 VisionWalk T-Shirt. We will have shirts available in sizes small through 2XL. The shirts are available on a first-come, first-served basis for sizes. Please stop by the T-Shirt Tent early in the day to get your choice of size!
