People may visit our registration page to register for the Color March and to get their own personal fundraising page, and/or they may accept checks made out to the March of Dimes. Any checks collected can be turned in the morning of the Color March at the registration tent on Flavet Field.
Is there a registration fee to participate?
Although there is no registration fee to participate in the Color March, we ask that all walkers raise a minimum of $25 in order to participate in the walk.
Will there be food?
What do I wear to the 5K?
Exercise clothes and comfortable walking shoes are strongly suggested. Teams are encouraged to wear team shirts to be easily identified and increase team morale. We also encourage particpants to wear white so they will be able to see the color from the Color March.
What happens if it rains on the day of the event?
We walk rain or shine- if it is raining the morning of the Color March please check your email, the Walk page, and the MODCC Facebook page for updates.
How long is the route?
The route will be nearly 5 kilometers long, or 2.95 miles to be exact. No worries, there will be 5 Color Stations located throughout which will provide refreshments and a morale boost along your route.
How many people will be there?
We are estimating about 500-1,000 walkers. Team competitions may get very serious in order to win prizes and to place, but not to worry, it’s all for a very good cause. Teams have been known to break out in team cheers and write checks at the last minute to win the top prizes, this is all perfectly normal as well.
Do I have to register with a team?
No! You can register with a team or as an individual. No team is too big or too small, and anyone can help make healthy moms and strong babies. We do have a suggested donation of least $25 for the March of Dimes.
