Frequently Asked Questions

Collecting Pledges/Donations

Who should my donors make their checks out to?
Make checks payable to CPC.

What is a pledge?
A pledge is a way to ‘donate now, pay later.’ Simply enter the pledge amount, name, and address of the person making the pledge and mark ‘Bill Me’ on your fundraising form – CPC will mail pledge statements to your donors starting in May.
Someone gave me a check/cash, what do I do with it?
Add the donation either to your Walk for LIFE fundraising form or enter it into collected donations on your personal Walk for LIFE fundraising web page (log in to your account and click 'Enter Donations’). Bring all cash and checks received, along with copies of your fundraising forms and online donations list, with you to the walk event you registered for.

Is fundraising required to participate in the event? Can I just donate and participate?

Fundraising is not required. However, CPC’s Walk for LIFE is one of our largest fundraisers of the year. Raise funds, save lives!

Are there incentives for fundraising?

Absolutely! We love to thank you for all that you do! See more information on the incentives offered this year on the Event Information page.


Are there registration fees to participate in the Walk for LIFE?
There is no additional fee to register or attend the walk events in Western Branch or at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Attendees of the walk at The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk who are not fundraising walkers will receive a discounted rate of $8 per person at the door to The Virginia Zoo's admission fee (children age 2 and under are free).

How do I get a t-shirt?

We do not sell our Walk for LIFE t-shirts. All fundraising walkers that raise $200 or more will receive a 2018 Walk for LIFE t-shirt at the walk event they attend.

Day of the Event

How far do I have to walk?
This is not an athletic event, you can walk as much or as little as you would like!

CPC’s Walk for LIFE will take place rain or shine, so make sure to check the weather beforehand and dress accordingly.

Can I bring my dog to the event?
We would love for you to bring your dog to the Western Branch or the Virginia Beach Oceanfront locations! However, pets are not allowed at the Virginia Zoo.
