Ways to Support the Walk


DSC_2708.jpg

Virtual Walk Date: Sunday, May 2, 2021

We were hoping this year would be different and we could walk side by side, but our top priority is the safety of our participants. Join us again this May virtually and Walk Your Way!

And while our Seattle Brain Cancer Walk experience may look different this year, our mission does not, we will still need support to help advance brain cancer research at The Ben & Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment. 

 
Registering for the Walk 

How do I register for the Walk?

Register as a virtual walker online at braincancerwalk.org.  Registration is complimentary. The first 150 registrants will receive a Seattle Brain Cancer Walk adult sized face mask. (Two per household)


Donating to the Walk

Support the Walk by donating to yourself and receive a badge on your fundraising page, donate to an individual or donate to a team.

I already registered, can I still donate and receive a badge on my fundraising page?
Yes, to self-donate, head to your fundraising page and select donate now.

Sending a check? How can I make sure the check that I am mailing in is credited to my team?
Please include the name of the participant you are supporting in the memo area of the check. If you are supporting a team and not an individual, please include the team name in the memo area, and be aware that team donations are credited to the team captain for bookkeeping purposes. You may also make a general donation to the Brain Cancer Walk.

My donation didn’t go through, or isn’t showing up on the webpage. What should I do?
Please be patient. Donations typically take a couple of hours to show up on the website. If you have already waited to see if it will display, contact us! We want to make sure all of your hard work and generous donations show up on your page within a reasonable amount of time.

My donation was applied to the wrong person. What should I do?
If your donation is showing on the website, but it is not credited to the intended participant, please email or call us, and we will be happy to fix it (seattlebraincancerwalk@swedish.org or 206-320-5260).
