Q.  How do I fundraise?
A.  Register as a participant and follow the easy steps to set-up your fundraising page. You can customize your page with your own personal message.

The easiest way to raise money for the kids is to ask your friends and family to donate to your page. Share your fundraising page link on social media and through email so they can donate through a secure site with their credit card. You can also accept cash and/or checks.

Q.  Who should any checks be made out to?
A.  Checks should be made out to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, with “PCH Race” in the memo. Once PCH receives your check or any cash you’ve collected, they will add those donations to your fundraising page so that everyone can see how close you are to reaching your goal.

Q.  Will there be food and drinks?
A.  There will be plenty of treats at the Festival, and CityScape offers many wonderful restaurants!

Q.  Can we bring wheels?
A.  Strollers, wheelchairs and other mobility aids are welcome! Please leave the roller skates, skate boards, and bicycles at home.

Q.  Can we bring our dogs?
A.  Yes! People with dogs are asked to start in the back.

Q.  When and where is packet pick up?
A.  We’ll let you know when we do!
