Frequently Asked Questions
Visit the website for the Walk for 1 in 100 in your area and click one of the following red button options on the home screen:
Start a Team – this option will prompt you to begin you own team.
You will have the opportunity to name it, set a fundraising goal, register
yourself as a captain and then invite friends and family to register as part of that team.
Join a Team – this option allows walkers to search for a team that has already
been created and then register to be a part of that team.
Register as an Individual – this option allows walkers to register individually, not as part of a team.
Yes, we want to know you’re walking with us and need every walker to sign a standard waiver through their official registration. If you do not have the ability to register online, you can register at the event. Registration is free.
Team captains are the heart of the Walk for 1 in 100. As a team captain, you recruit your team of family, friends and coworkers, help them fundraise, keep them motivated and have fun for a great cause in the process.
Registration for individuals and teams is free. However, we do rely on the fundraising efforts of all walkers to help support the Adult Congenital Heart Association. Minimum fundraising amounts are suggestions but we strongly encourage every walker to make a personal donation upon registering.
No. Individual walkers who raise $50 or more will receive an event t-shirt on walk day. Totals for this fundraising prize include individual efforts only. Please note that team totals are not considered. To ensure you receive a t-shirt, please have donors give to your personal fundraising page.
When you register as part of a team, two things happen. The first is that a personal fundraising page is created for you. You should circulate the link to this page to your potential donors. The second is that you are added to your team page roster. Team pages have the ability to accept general team donations, not assigned to any individual walker. These funds are not included in any prize totals. If you are striving for a t-shirt or other prize, please focus on collecting donations to your personal page. All individual fundraising is counted towards the overall team total.
The best fundraising efforts start by sharing your personal story about why you're participating in the Walk for 1 in 100. You can share your story on your personal fundraising page by logging in to your participant center. Once your page is updated, share it with friends, family, and coworkers via email, social media, and word of mouth.
The National Office will accept donations anytime. However, when it comes to prizes, 30 days post-event is the cut off.
In most cases, yes. If someone made a donation to the team page but meant to give it to a specific walker, this is an easy fix. Contact the National Office with all the necessary information and they would be happy to help.

Matching gifts from employers are a great way to increase your fundraising total! If your company offers such a program, the first step likely starts with you – the donor. Typically there is a form to fill out. Afterwards, the gift is verified by the National Office via online or paper request. Every company is different so if you have any questions, please reach out to the National Office. Remember, our tax id # is 04-3447959.
Most walks include a 1 mile and/or 3 mile route. Please consult your local walk website to confirm the route length.
Our events are rain or shine. The only exception being dangerous weather. Any weather related announcements will be posted on your local walk homepage and emailed to all registrants.
Although almost all of our venues are in dog friendly public spaces, we discourage participants from bringing dogs. We ask that walkers use their best judgement as there will be a large crowd and many small children at the event.
Any additional questions can be emailed to the National Office or by calling 215-849-1260
