Frequently Asked Questions


When is the Heart Walk?

Saturday, April 24 2021

Where is the Heart Walk?

Walk where you are! Do you have a favorite walking trail or one you would like to check out?

How do I show that I'm participating?

Share your photos and videos using the hashtag #UpstateHeartWalk on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Join us on the Facebook event for fun activities!

Should I still register?

Absolutely! Registering online gives you access to all our great fundraising tools, the new fitness challenge tracker on the app and keeps you updated on day-of activities!

Since the event is virtual, are you still fundraising?

Yes, the American Heart Association is still raising funds to fight heart disease and stroke! Our survivors and their families are counting on us to continue with our mission. Through this fundraising the AHA donated $2.5 million to COVID-19 research.

Where can I send donations?

If you have donations that you can’t donate online, please send donations to American Heart Association
Attn: Upstate Heat Walk
887 Johnnie Dodds Blvd, Ste 110
Mt Pleasant, SC 29464

Do I still get a t-shirt?

Registered participants that raise over $100 are eligible redeem credits to receive a Heart Walk t-shirt. Visit the Rewards Center in your dashboard for more information.

 

Registration

Is there a registration fee?

Nope. Instead, participants are encouraged to fundraise so your impact is limitless (don’t worry, we’ll help!) and make a personal donation to support the Heart Walk.

Should I register ahead of time?

Absolutely! Registering online gives you access to all our great fundraising tools and keeps you updated on day of event info. It also lets us know how many people to expect on the day of the walk.

If I participated last year, how do I get my login information?

Can I participate in Heart Walk if I'm not on a Team?

Sure, you can walk and fundraise individually. Every donation raised will help create big science! But hey, since you’re already on board, maybe consider starting a team and asking friends, family and coworkers to join you to also be Heart Walk heroes. It’s easy, and we’ll walk you through each step.

 

Fundraising

Is there a fundraising minimum?

No, and there’s no maximum either! We encourage every participant to make a difference by asking friends and family for donations and making a personal donation.

How are donations made?

Donations can be made securely to your personal fundraising page with a credit card. Cash and checks may also be collected. All checks should be made payable to the American Heart Association.

Can I fundraise after Walk day?

Of course! Who are we to stop you from achieving fundraising fame? Your fundraising page will stay open for approximately 6 weeks after the event. You can also submit cash and checks to your local American Heart Association office at any time.

What kind of support will I or my team receive?

Real live Heart Walk staff and volunteers are ready to help every step of the way with fundraising tools, resources and any other support you may need.
