Do I have to raise money to participate?
Fundraising is strongly encouraged. Please remember that the funds you raise help JWW to raise awareness of ongoing atrocities in Myanmar, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria and in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and to provide funds for relief projects and development in refugee camps and communities in conflict.
Registered Walkers who do not want to fundraise are encouraged to make a donation in addition to the registration fee in lieu of raising funds. Please see suggested donation amounts.
I registered but my registration fee does not show up in my fundraising thermometer - doesn't my registration fee count towards my fundraising?
Your registration fee DOES count towards your fundraising, however it will not show up immediately. Your thermometer will move once the registration is processed on the back end, so please allow 24-48 hours. Note that all donations you receive (including self-donations) WILL move the thermometer immediately. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
