How do I become a P4P team member?
To be a team member, you will need to purchase a ticket to your event and create an individual fundraising page. Click on the “Register” tab, buy your ticket, and fill out the registration form. P4P receives an email when someone has completed their registration, and adds them to the team. You will receive a welcome email from us when you have been added to the team.
 
Do I register as an individual or create a team? 
When you register, you will be asked about the type of your registration: Individual Participant, Start a Team, or Join a Team. If you are running in the festival by yourself, you will register as an individual. If you are walking/running with a group, you have the option to start a team. This will allow you to have a central group page to see all of your team members and see how much you have raised collectively. To have a team, one person will serve as the “captain” and create the team. This person will be creating BOTH a team page and an individual page. The other team members will select “Join a Team” when they go to register and select the team name from the drop down box. Each P4P team member will have an individual fundraising page.
 
What if I want to fundraise but NOT participate in one of the races?
That's just fine! When you register, select a "Virtual Runner" ticket. When creating your fundraising page, make sure you indicate you will not be running. Under the question “By creating a page as a P4P participant, we will register you for the BRF," make sure you answer I will NOT be running. Many of our volunteers or family members choose this option and cheer from the sideline. You will still receive all of the benefits of being a P4P team member if you meet our $100 minimum.
 
How do I register for the Baltimore Running Festival?
P4P will register you for the race for which you bought a ticket. You do NOT need to register for the Baltimore Running Festival on your own. We receive an email after you create your page and will register you within a few days. Once P4P registers you, you will receive a confirmation email from Corrigan Sports – the Baltimore Running Festival, as well as a welcome email from P4P.
 
What does it cost?

Why is there a fundraising requirement?
Pacing for Parkinson's offers the best race day support for its charity runners, along with a premium technical t-shirt, post-race reception, and events througout the year. A fundraising minimum ensures we can continue to offer these perks to our runners and donate as much as possible to Johns Hopkins Medicine and its PDMD Center.
 
What happens if I do not meet the fundraising requirement?
We ask all team members to dedicate themselves to meeting this requirement. In our 8th year we trust our team members to not hold a credit card. You cannot receive your P4P shirt until you meet the minimum. We will be reaching out to those individuals who do not meet the minimum.

Where does the money I raise/give go?
In the past, Pacing for Parkinson’s funds have contributed to a “Rock Steady Boxing” program in Harford County, the continuation of the Parkinsonics Choral Program, made monthly support groups and an annual patient-provider symposium possible, as well as sponsored regional programs to educate others in the healthcare community (generalists, managed care communities, etc…) about how to identify and care for people with PD and other movement disorders. P4P proceeds have also supported an array of novel research projects recently, including a pilot study investigating Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) as a therapeutic intervention in PD, the Parkinsonics clinical trial, an evaluation of cognition in patients with DBS and an assessment of wearable technologies for movement recording. It is our goal to direct as much of the funds raised to the PDMD Center to advance Johns Hopkins Medicine’s tripartite mission of research, education and clinical care. Charitable gifts made to Johns Hopkins University are subject to policies as approved by the University, and in accordance with such policies, a portion of this gift will be directed to be used to support institutional priorities (http://rising.jhu.edu/givingfaqs) as directed by the University.

I already registered for the Baltimore Running Festival on my own. Can I still join the P4P team?
We encourage our participants to register through us. If you are already registered, you can still join our team to fundraise and enjoy all of the benefits. Please indicate you are already registered on the P4P registration form.  

What happens if I need to cancel my registration?
Registration is non-refundable. This is a Baltimore Running Festival policy and standard pracitice across the race industry. However, should you want to transfer your registration to another participant, please email the committee.

What if I want to switch to another race?
Please contact us for your options.

How does a relay team work?
Your team captain needs to purchase a Team Relay ticket. The captain will then be asked to set up their fundraising page. Once this is completed, the captain will receive an email with a link for the remaining participants to set up their pages.

What do I need to participate in the race?
In order to run on race day, you will need pick up your race bib at the Health & Fitness Expo at the Baltimore Convention Center.  You CANNOT walk/run without your bib (number). You are responsible for picking this up. You receive all of the perks of the running festival, being a part of a charity team is additional.
 
How do I fundraise? 
Your individual fundraising page allows you to collect donations online. Send the link of your page to your family and friends! Many team members get creative with their fundraising; to include raising money through raffles, happy hours, selling homemade items like jam, and more! If you need help, just let us know.

Can I collect cash and check donations?
Yes! Checks should be payable to Johns Hopkins and write “Pacing 4 Parkinson’s” in the memo. You can mail donations to:
  
ADDRESS FORTHCOMING - please contact pacing4parkinsons@gmail.com.

Please include a note with who should get credit for the donation.  

How can I change my t-shirt size?
Not a problem! Please contact the committee. The later your register or switch, the harder it will be to guarantee size.

What do I wear on race day? 
Wear your P4P shirt!!!

How do I get my P4P shirt?
There will be several pick-up days between September and October leading up to the race where you can pick up your shirt. It is STRONGLY encouraged you pick up your shirt prior to race day. You may pick up for other team members.
