Frequently Asked Questions


How do I form a team?

Forming a team is easy! From the homepage of the event, click "Register." If you're a new participant, click "Start a Team." You will automatically become the team captain for your team. Then, ask friends, family and coworkers to join your team and the fight against Alzheimer’s. If you are a returning participant, log in with your username and password, then chose to start a team.

What responsibilities does a team captain have?

Team captains are the heart of our events. As a team captain, you recruit your team of family, friends and coworkers, help them fundraise, keep them motivated and have fun fighting for a great cause in the process. You will also have access to a team fundraising web page and numerous tools to make your team a success.

How do I start fundraising?

The best fundraising efforts start by sharing your personal story about why you're participating in this event. 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 networking, and word of mouth.

Where does the money go?

The funds raised through this event benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. See this page for more information on our fundraising standards.

How is the money collected?

Submitting donations to the Alzheimer’s Association is quick and easy. Donations can be made online, by submitting a check or money order by mail and hand-delivering cash, checks or money orders to your local Chapter.

What is the date of the event?

NEW Event Date: Sunday, February 6th
As you all know, we have been closely monitoring the weather for this weekend's event. As of this morning, the temperature at elevation with windchill looks to be consistently between -10 and -30 degrees on Saturday. Considering this forecast, we do not feel that we can safely host an event this Saturday where participants are going to be outside for 7-8.5 hours without the option to warm up indoors.

We understand that this may be an inconvenience to many of you, especially those traveling from out of town. To best accommodate all participants, we are going to move the event to the following day, this Sunday, February 6th. We hope that all of you are able to join us for the new event date and feel confident conditions will make for a great experience!

Where does the event take place?

The start and finish of our loop, as well as registration, is located at 600 Handy Road, Huntington, VT. Our Challenge trail makes a clockwise loop around Camel’s Hump, utilizing a combination of private and public trails. Much of the loop is on state land and is maintained strictly for this event.

How will COVID affect this year’s event?

We will run our event this year in compliance with all state guidelines regarding COVID. As these guidelines fluctuate, it is difficult to know exactly what this year’s event will look like.

Are my registration and donations refundable if the event is canceled?

We are working hard to make every effort to hold some type of event this year, even if state guidelines mandate that it become fully virtual. Since the need for financial support is constant, we will donate all funds to the Alzheimer’s Association no matter what type of event we are able to have.

How does virtual participation work?

By choosing to participate virtually, you will have the opportunity to choose your own "Challenge" in support of the Alzheimer's Association, Vermont Chapter and their vision of a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.
