Do I need to register each member of my family?
Everyone that attends the 5K Run Walk and Roll must be registered to participate. Children under the age of 2 do not need to register. 

Can I register at the event?
Registration will be available at the 5th Avenue Pavilion gazebo starting at 8:00 AM on Saturday, October 10, 2020. It is encouraged that participants check in at packet pick-up the night before the event (Friday, October 9, 2020) to minimize crowding. 

How do I participate virtually?
The great thing about participating virtually is that you can do it on your time, your way! Get active whenever you want, or join us virtually on October 10th. We’ll be live streaming the opening remarks and start time on our Facebook page.

Take photos when you walk, run or roll and make sure to tag us on Facebook, (@BIAOfNJ/Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey), Instagram (@braininjuryallianceofnj), and Twitter (@BrainInjuryNJ)!

If you choose the t-shirt option when you register, a t-shirt will be mailed to you before October 10th.

More information for runners and time tracking coming soon.

I registered to walk but now I want to run. Can I switch after registering?
To switch activities, please email us at info@bianj.org by October 5, 2020.

I am fundraising on Facebook. Can people donate through Facebook?
Facebook will likely prompt you to “add a donate button” to your post. 

Do NOT opt into the “donate” button if you want your funds to be attributed to your efforts. When donations are given through Facebook, they are given to BIANJ anonymously weeks after the transaction, and we have no way of tracking where it came from. Unfortunately once funds are given through the donate button, we have no control over them and cannot move them to your fundraising page.

It is best to include a link to your fundraising page instead. 

Can I pick up my t-shirt before event day?
Yes. See pick up details here.

What happens if it is raining on event day?
The event is rain or shine. In the event of thunderstorms, check our Facebook page for live updates. Updates will only be posted in case of weather related postponement.

Can I bring my dog with me?
Yes! Our event is dog-friendly.

I am participating virtually. Will I receive my t-shirt?
If you register before September 1st, you will receive your t-shirt before the day of the in-person event.
