Thank you for your interest in being a TEAM CAPTAIN for the 2017 Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization Buddy Walk®.  We are thrilled you will be joining us!  We are using Donor Drive again this year for our Buddy Walk® website and believe you will find it more user friendly.  

We have put together a quick guide to walk you through the process of STARTING A TEAM for the 2017 Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization Buddy Walk®.  Are you ready?  Let’s do this! 

HOW TO REGISTER AND START A TEAM:

  • Click the REGISTER NOW button on the Buddy Walk® home page. 
  • Select your registration type and enter your personal fundraising goal (not your Team goal.)
  • Select “Create a Team”, enter your Team Name and your team's fundraising goal.
  • Choose the appropriate team type from the drop down
  • Select your t-shirt size
  • Read and agree to the terms and conditions of the Event Waiver

Click "CONTINUE TO NEXT STEP" for Step 2 of the registration process where you will enter your contact information and create your user name and password (NOTE: Your user name is your e-mail address and your password must be at least 6 characters long.)

Click  "CONTINUE TO NEXT STEP" for Step 3 of the registration process where you will enter your billing information.  If you would like to make a donation toward your fundraising goal, you may do so on this screen.

Click "CONTINUE TO NEXT STEP" for Step 4 of the registration process where you will confirm the information you entered is correct.  If so, click the “COMPLETE REGISTRATION” button.

Once your registration is CONFIRMED, you can:

  • Register an additional person
  • Access your Buddy Walk® Fundraising Portal where you can edit your personal and team fundraising pages, email friends and family to ask for support, or register other participants at a later time.

IF YOU WILL BE REGISTERING ADDITIONAL MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY

  • Click on the “Register Another Person” button 
  • Follow the instructions for STEP 1, the team to join will be pre-selected 
  • In STEP 2, enter the participants name and their relationship to you.
    • You will have two choices for account access:
      • You will manage the participant’s account 
      • Enter your e-mail address for the user name for each person you register
      • Later, you can “hide” the page so no one can donate to it
    • The registrant will manage their own account 
      • You will need a different e-mail address for each person you register
      • Later, they will be able to “hide” their page so no one can donate to it
  • In STEP 3, your billing information is saved.  Enter an additional donation if desired, and continue
  • In STEP 4, confirm the registration.
  • Repeat until everyone has been registered.

Once you have registered everyone:

  • You are now logged into your event headquarters for the Buddy Walk®.  If you exit this page, just login with your email address and password when you return to the Buddy Walk® event site.  There are links for you to create your pages, register others to participate and ask donors for their support. 
  • Personalize your fundraising page. 
  • As the Team Captain, you will need to customize both your personal page AND your team page.  We encourage you to add photos and a story to make it compelling.  These are the pages that potential team members and donors will be visiting!
  • Make sure you look at other areas of your profile for additional tools (importing contact lists, sending messages to donors or team members, etc.)

Please contact info@goldcoastdownsyndrome.org with any questions!  We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, October 15th at Center Drive Pavilion, John Prince Park, Lake Worth.
