We answer your frequently asked questions to make registering and fundraising simple
You can find answers to some of the most common questions below. If your question still remains unanswered, please use the contact page and we’ll be more than happy to help!
Click ‘SIGN UP NOW‘ on the homepage or the menu bar of the Walk4BrainCancer website.
You’ll be asked to choose if you’d like to register and fundraise or register and create/ join a team. Once you’ve selected an option you can then select the number and type of tickets you’d like to purchase and progress to payment.
To create a team, you first need to have registered for a walk and have set up a team fundraising page. There are two options you’ve when joining a team:
Option 1. If you haven’t already registered, start by finding your walk and clicking ‘REGISTER AND CREATE A TEAM‘. Then create your fundraising page and a separate team page. Only one person has the ability to edit a team page and add members, so decide who that person will be before you set up the team page.
Option 2. If you’ve already registered but not set up an individual fundraising or team fundraising page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will be in touch to help out!
Please note: By creating a team page, you’ve also created an individual fundraising page. Please direct your friends and family, who only wish to donate and not attend, to your individual fundraising page. If you direct people to donate to your team page, the funds will be part of a generic pool for that page and not against your name. This can make things confusing when it comes to thanking people for individual donations.
To join a team, you first need to be registered for a walk. There are two options when joining a team:
Option 1. If you haven’t already registered, start by clicking ‘REGISTER AND JOIN A TEAM’. Then create your fundraising page, select the team you want to join, and your name will appear on that team’s page. This allows you to show how much your individual efforts have contributed to the team.
If you’ve already registered but not set up an individual fundraising page (or someone else registered for you), check your registration email as it contains instructions for setting up your fundraising page and joining a team.
If you’ve registered and already have an individual fundraising page, sign in at the top of this page and go to ‘MY ACCOUNT’. Click on your fundraising page and click ‘JOIN TEAM’, search for the team name or organisers name and select the team you wish to join.
Option 2. If you’d prefer not to create an individual fundraising page, you can join as a ‘NAME ONLY’ team member. Your name will appear on the team page, but your fundraising contribution won’t be visible. Ask the team organiser to add you as a ‘NAME ONLY’ member (refer them to question 4 below).
Sign in at the top of this page and go to ‘MY ACCOUNT’. Select your team fundraising page and scroll down and click on ‘ADD TEAM MEMBERS’. You’ll then be prompted to ‘INVITE BY EMAIL’ or ‘ADD NAMES ONLY’ to your team:
We encourage everyone who is fundraising to create their own fundraising page, which they should then link to the team. This shows how much each team member has raised alongside the collective total on the team page. It’s a great way to bring out the competitive spirit of your teammates and encourage fundraising.
If they are attending the walk, they need to register. In order to create their own fundraising page, they’ll need to register for the walk.
This is likely happening because you’ve inadvertently ‘hidden’ your page, which means it’s still a draft and not published on the website. To publish your page, sign in to your account at the top of any page and go to ‘MY ACCOUNT’. Under ‘MY FUNDRAISING‘, you’ll see your fundraising page, and a button to ‘EDIT’ on the right-hand side. This will take you to your fundraising page. Click on ‘EDIT PAGE’, uncheck ‘HIDE MY PAGE’ and click ‘DONE’. Please ensure you’re happy with your page as completing these steps will publish your page.

It takes around two weeks for a custom t-shirt to be produced and posted. As they’re extra special, they take a bit longer to be printed. To be sure you receive this in time for your event, please order two weeks in advance.
Our production team needs to spend time setting up your team’s design and making sure that your shirts look amazing. The minimum to make this cost effective for us, and you, is five shirts.
In order to get a great result for your custom t-shirt, we need you to supply a high-resolution image so the photo on your t-shirt doesn’t look blurry or pixelated.
We suggest using a photo that is in JPEG format and minimum 300dpi, or at least 1299 pixels high x 1299 pixels wide.
Alternatively, you can email email@example.com with your order number and we’ll ensure the right photo is printed on your shirt.
You can check whether your photo meets these requirements by following these steps:
• Right click on the saved image on your computer
• Go to properties
• Click on the ‘details’ tab
• All the information you’re looking for is in the ‘image’ section of this screen
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details and a little information about where your walk will take place. We will be in touch very soon!
