Q. How do I register for the Ride for the Cure?
A. Online registration is quick and easy! Click here to register online. Fundraising commitment of $360, $500 or $1000 must be met in order to participate on Ride day (or you may fill out the delayed self-donation form). Credit cards will be accepted at Packet Pick-Up and on Ride day. Note: Registrations are non-transferable and non-refundable. Each rider must pick up his/her own registration packet. Please bring a photo ID to registration.
Q. Once I have registered, can I change my Ride distance?
A. Yes, Riders may choose to change their Ride distance but must notify the registration tent prior to leaving on the route. Example: I signed up for the 30 mile, but after training, I have decided I can Ride 60 miles. This is wonderful! We would be happy to move you to the 60 mile Ride!
Q. How can I get started with fundraising?
A. Visit your Participant Center to utilize your online fundraising tools.
Q. Can I mail in a donation rather than give online?
A. Yes, if you prefer to give by check, please and mail it to: Komen Chicago, 213 West Institute Place, Suite 302, Chicago, IL 60610
Q. What if I haven't raised $ by Ride Day?
A. If you haven't raised the minimum fundrasing of either $360, $500, or $1000 in donations by Ride day, you have two options in order to participate in the event: instant self-donation or delayed self-donation. The instant self-donation is an donation that you make to your own fundraising account, which posts immediately. For a delayed self-donation, you give us a credit card number to secure coverage of the donation balance, but you have until Friday, September 29, 2017 to fulfill your fundraising committment. This means that you can continue to accept donations until September 29. If by that date you have still not reached your committment of $360, $500, or $1000, any outstanding balance will automatically be charged to your credit card. If you have reached donation goal, your card will NOT be charged. Please note that any mailed donations must be received ON OR BEFORE September 29, 2017 to be credited to your account. Please allow proper time for mailing and processing.
