Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to register in order to walk in the Buddy Walk?
Yes, we want to know you're walking with us and require each walker to virtually sign a waiver of participation.
Is there a registration fee for the Cincinnati Buddy Walk?
No, there is no fee to sign up and participate in our annual event.  We do encourage you to raise funds for the team you are a member of and to also personally support your team by making a donation.  
Does every walker get a T-shirt?
Every registered participant will receive a FREE T-shirt if they are registered online by August 10th.
Do I need to register my children for the Walk?
Yes, if your children are participating in the walk, we need to have record of it for shirt distribution, waiver and photo release, crowd control, etc.
When do I get my T-shirt?
The week leading up to the Buddy Walk, the DSAGC will hold "T-Shirt Week" at our offices.  It will give Team Captains the opportunity to pick up all of the shirts for their registered team members.  It is the Captains responsibility (or a designated person on the team) to get the shirts and distribute to each team member.  Specific dates and times for pick up will be posted in mid August.  
I'm trying to register and I'm having trouble logging in.  What do I do?
You can reset your password by following the instructions.  It may take at least 5 minutes to receive the email alert with reset information. Or you can call our offices and we will reset your password and get you started.
What time does the walk start?
The walk will start on time at 10:00 a.m.  The St. X drumline will kick off the walk and perform in front of the main DJ stage, where we will also countdown to the start of the walk.
