We're moving forward with plans to host in-person events this fall while keeping your health and safety as our top priorities. Registered participants who wish to Walk From Home can find more details in their Participant Center.
Our Walk is developed and planned by a committee of passionate volunteers who work year-round in the areas of marketing and outreach, team retention, team recruitment, sponsorship, logistics, mission and advocacy -- and the event grows and thrives when new faces and new ideas come to the table! We work hard, set ambitious goals, develop lasting friendships and have a lot of fun.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We've curated a list of virtual fundraising ideas from champions across the country! From an old fashioned letter writing campaign to a coloring contest a virtual board game-a-thon with friends - check out all of the fun ideas here!

Does your employer match donations? Did you receive a donation from someone who works for a big company? Click here find out if a company has a matching gift policy. If so, follow the instructions from the company's profile to apply for a match and then let us know by completing a matching gift trace form so that we can apply the match to your personal Walk goal as soon as we receive it: East Bay Walk - NorCal Chapter: Matching Gift Trace Form. NOTE: some companies distribute charitable gifts monthly, quarterly, or even just twice per year. It may take weeks to see the match on your page. Feel free to also view the Matching Gift FAQ for more information on matching gifts!
Do you have a public fundraising event planned? Maybe a Dine & Donate at a local restaurant or a donation based Pilates or Indoor Cycling class? Let us know! We’ll post it here on the Walk website, and we encourage everyone to share with other Walkers in our Facebook group!
