Frequently Asked Questions – Walk and Roll

What is a Walk and Roll?

Walk and Rolls are fun events that bring the Foundation community together. Each year, members of our patient community organize walks in cities across Canada as a way to come together, raise awareness and generate funds for patient support. At these walks, foundation members along with their friends and families, gather at designated locations to walk in solidarity. The primary goals of Walk and Rolls are to foster community and increase awareness about our rare conditions. For those who are comfortable, there is an opportunity to support the Foundation’s patient programs by inviting friends, family or colleagues to join the walk or to make a donation.

Where do I sign up for a Walk and Roll?

Signing up is easy! Just visit our Walk and Roll page and select the walk that you’d like to participate in. This will take you to our Walk and Roll sign-up page where you can register as an individual as well as form a team or join a team.

Alternatively, you can register on the day of the walk. Each walk sets up early to accommodate on-the-day registrations. Registration is free of charge.

If I want to create a team, do I register first as an Individual or a Team?

Walking with friends, family and colleagues is not just a great way to raise awareness, it is also lots of fun! If you’d like to create a team, start by registering as an Individual. After registering, you can then form a team and invite your network to join you.

How can I ask my friends, family and colleagues to participate or donate to my team?

Canada Helps, the registration platform, allows you to send the invite directly to those in your email contact list and across your social media platforms in the “Share Across Your Platforms” section.

The Foundation also has many tools that can help you reach out to your network and invite them to support your team.

What’s a Hero Box?

In my page media – I uploaded a picture but it shows sideways. How can I fix that?

It has to do with the size of the picture. You may need to use an application such as Photoshop, or adjust the size on your Apple device in order to make the picture change its orientation. If you are not able to get this to work, please let us know.
