Frequently Asked Questions
Why are there two registration forms?
There are two different registration options to sign up for Hike for Hospice.
The Online Registration form allows you to create your own fundraiser page that tracks your online and offline pledges. You can then share your page on social media or by email so people can make pledges.
The Mail-in Registration form is for those of us that prefer a more traditional method of fundraising. Fill out the Mail-in Registration Form and mail to us directly. The mailing address is on the form. You can also scan or take a picture of the completed mail-in registration form and email it to us as well.
If I register online, do I still have to use the downloadable pledge form for offline pledges?
