Event Day Questions
Q. Are pets, bicycles and in line skates allowed?
Bicycles and in line skates are not allowed. Not all of our walk sites are pet friendly. Please confirm with IDF as to which sites are not. Please keep in mind that not everyone is comfortable with pets, many people are allergic, and many animals react differently in large crowds than they do at home.
Q. Can I register for the Walk the day of the event?
Yes. While it is encouraged to pre-register for IDF Walk for PI, we do offer registration on the day of the walk. When you arrive at the site, proceed to the New Registration line. Also keep in mind that by registering prior to the walk you will have more time to maximize your fundraising!
Q. How long is the route, and will it be difficult for any participants?
Each location will have a different length walk route, but each walk route will be approximately 1.0 to 1.5 miles long. In addition, shorter alternate routes will be available in most locations. Each route is intended to be easily accessible by stroller and wheelchair as well.
This is a non-competitive event and all participants are encouraged to walk at their own pace, at a distance that they are comfortable with and able to complete without causing any physical strain. Any walker who is a patient with a primary immunodeficiency disease (or the parent of a walker under age 18) should confirm with their physician whether participation in the walk is advisable.
Q. What if it rains?
Then we'll all get a little bit wet! IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency takes place rain or shine. Unless there are extreme weather conditions, the event will take go on. If rain is in the forecast, please dress accordingly so that fun will still be had by all!
Q. What do I need to bring with me to the walk?
Any gifts that you have collected offline, wear comfortable walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. If it is sunny, wear sunscreen. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
Q. What do I get on the day of the walk?
When you turn in $100 on or before walk day, you will receive an official IDF Walk for PI t-shirt.
Q. How do I obtain my incentives?
All walkers who raise $100 or more by walk day will receive their official IDF Walk for PI t-shirt at the event.
There are other great incentives available for raising $250 or more. You will be sent an e-mail when the online prize claim form is ready, typically six weeks post walk. Once you complete the claim form, you will receive your incentive in about six weeks.
Q. If I'm on a team, do I have separate check-in?
No. Team members check-in individually, and then proceed to the special Team Meeting Area to meet their teammates.
Q. What food is available at the walk?
Light snacks and water will be available for you throughout the walk. If you have special dietary restrictions or needs, please bring your own food and/or beverages.
