Q: Is there a cost to participate in the 2019 Vancouver AIDS WALK?

A: No, there is no cost to register or participate. However, the Vancouver AIDS WALK is a peer to peer fundraising effort. Participants register and then raise money from their peers that goes to help low income people living with HIV in BC. By registering, you agree to try and raise donations by asking your friends, family and coworkers to make a donation.

Remember, only WALKers who raise $100.00 or more in donations will get a FREE Limited Edition Joe Average t-shirt as a sign of our gratitude! Register now and check out our Fundraising 101 page now!

Q: What does it mean to be a team captain?

A: Being a team captain for the Vancouver AIDS WALK is fun, rewarding and a fantastic way to make a difference in your community. Team captains register as captains, create a team fundraising page, recruit team members (friends, family or coworkers) to help fundraise and raise donations by sharing the link to their team fundraising page. A team can range in size anywhere from 2 people to 500 people – the sky’s the limit! Last year’s teams were credited with raising almost $40,000.00, which is pretty amazing!

Q: You’ve changed the registration again, haven’t you?

A: Yes, we’ve moved to using CanadaHelps for the 2019 Vancouver AIDS WALK. CanadaHelps is a charity that provides affordable fundraising tools to Canadian Charities. We hope this change will make registration and team sign up much easier this year – but if you are having any issues with your CanadaHelps page, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Fund Development Director Jason Hjalmarson for assistance.
