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 who prefer a more traditional method of fundraising. Simply 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 Offline Pledge Form?
Yes. The Offline Pledge Form is for tracking pledges made by people who donated by cheque, money order, or e-transfer. Mail the Offline Pledge Form and pledges to us so that we can send the donor a charitable receipt for their contribution.
How do I track pledges if I registered online?
When you register online, CanadaHelps.org automatically tracks your online pledges for you. You can track your offline pledges as well, but you have enter them manually. The process is quite simple.
Do I give receipts to the people who gave me pledges?
If you are gathering pledges online through our CanadaHelps.org fundraiser event, then CanadaHelps.org emails a receipt to the donor for you.
If you are gathering offline pledges, such as cheques, money orders, or e-transfer pledges, then fill out the Offline Pledge Form with the donor's information. Mail the cheques, money orders, and e-transfer information to us along with the pledge sheet and we will send the donors a receipt.
How far do I have to Hike on May 6?
There is no maximum distance that you have to hike.
I don't have social media but want to share my hike story and experience. How can I still participate?
Absolutely. Send your photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org and with your permission, we will share your photos and videos on our Facebook Event Page.
I want to support hospice but don't want to participate in the hike, what else can I do?
You can still be a part of our hike by pledging someone who is participating or to the Hike for Hospice event itself. You can also visit our website at www.qdhpca.org/donors to learn about more ways to donate.
