Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the SGK TC20?
The SGK TC20 is a 20 mile walk which raises funds to help support life-saving, breast-health programs right here in Minnesota. With funds raised by the Komen Minnesota Affiliate, community grants will be made to support evidence-based strategies and promising practices to reduce disparities in breast cancer mortality in Minnesota.
What can I expect on event?
We’ll kick off the event with an opening ceremony taking place at 7:00am at Southdale Shopping Center. From there we’ll walk through some of the most scenic parts of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Every 3 to 4 miles along the walking route, we'll provide pit stops. At pit stops, we’ll have cold water and sports drinks along with light snacks and restrooms. Medical teams will be available at all pit stops. Around the halfway point of the route, a light lunch will be provided. The finish line will be held at the State Capital in St. Paul where we’ll all join together to celebrate our journey at our Closing Ceremonies.
Is there a fundraising minimum?
Participants ages 13-21 have a fundraising minimum of $500; Participants ages 22+ have a fundraising minimum of $750.
What if I don't raise my required fundraising minimum?
Your entire fundraising minimum is due by the day of the Walk. If you have not raised your entire amount by the day of the Walk, you can turn in additional donations or self-donate to meet your required fundraising minimum.
Can team members share or split donations?
We ask that each team member still raise her or his minimum fundraising requirement on their own, however, team fundraising will be pooled (team captains can opt out of this if they do not want their donations to be pooled). For the sake of the cause, we hope each team member will raise even more than their minimum to do their part. The purpose of a team is to support each individual in doing more, not less, than they could do on their own. Donors can donate to your individual fundraising personal page, or to your team page. All team funds, whether on an individual page or team page, will be pooled to go towards the entire team. Team Captains, please contact us at 952-746-1760 for additional instructions.
Team members are allowed to pool their fundraising IF the team captain wants their team set up that way (keep reading...). An example of "pool your fundraising" is as follows: Team Johnson has 2 Adult Walkers, and 1 Youth on their team. As a team, their fundraising minimum they have to meet is $2,000, which is $750 (Adult #1) + $750 (Adult #2) + $500 (Youth) = $2,000. Let's say Adult #1 on Team Johnson raises the entire $2,000 on his/her personal fundraising page, the entire team is able to Walk because the team, as a whole, met their fundraising minimum. This calculating is done offline by the Walk office as the website is not set up for team fundraising like this. If your team does NOT want to pool their funds, we do not have to calculate it that way. Contact us with questions.
Can one team member raise the money for all members? Can we pool our donations?
Technically, yes. Just make sure that the total amount of donations covers the minimum fundraising amount for each Walker. Meaning, if you have 5 Adult Walkers on your team, you must raise 5 x $750 (the required fundraising minimum for Adult Walkers) = $3,750 to have met your fundraising goal.
Are there any age limitations?
Walkers must be at least 13 years of age by the end of the year the event takes place in order to participate. Registered walkers who are 13-17 years of age must provide a minor consent form signed by a parent or guardian and be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also a registered walker.
What if I can’t walk 20 miles?
If during the event you are unable to continue walking or just need a break, one of our support vehicles will transport you ahead on the route.
What is a Virtual Walker?
If you are going to be out of town, working or prefer to snooze instead of lacing up your walking shoes, this is the event for you! This option allows you to support the cause from out of town or the comfort of your own bed.
If you register as an individual or a team member and reach your fundraising minimum, your T-shirt will be mailed to you after the event. Your fundraising will add to your team’s fundraising total. You will receive a fundraising page once you register.
Is there busing back to Southdale Center after the event?
Shuttle service will be provided for any participant who would like a ride back to Southdale Center to pick up their vehicle following closing ceremonies. Otherwise, Lyft and Uber options are also available.
Do I need permission from my Doctor to participate?
