Can I participate without registering?

All walkers, except children 5 and under who do not want a t-shirt, must register and wear their walker/runners’ number, also called a runners’ bib, to participate.

When can walkers/runners pick up their packets?

Day Before Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day

Do the walker/runner shirts have long sleeves or short sleeves?

The participant shirts are long sleeved.

Do all participants get a t-shirt?

Only the walkers/runners that participate in the Grateful Gobbler Walk in person starting at Coolidge Park receive t-shirts. Sleepwalkers do not receive t-shirts. Volunteers also receive a t-shirt.

I’ve already registered. How do I join a team?

You can still join or create a group if you previously registered as an individual. Log in to your Eventbrite account, and click to view your order details on the “Tickets” page. Then select “Join a Team” to get started.

Can I register in-person the morning of the event?

YES! You can register in-person the morning of the event. Doors open at 6:30 am Thanksgiving Day if you want to register in person. Come on down!

You can register online through the event as well.

I haven’t registered yet. Will walk-up registration be available the morning of the event?

Yes. Walk-up registration will be available Thanksgiving morning starting at 6:30 am. Walk-up registration will also be available the day before Thanksgiving from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm at Coolidge Park in the pavilion. Online registration will be open until after the event.

Is my registration fee tax deductible?

Yes. Your registration fee is 100% tax deductible. The Grateful Gobbler Walk has a very generous anonymous donor that is covering all event expenses so 100% of the money raised will go to the new Shelter for Homeless Families.

Is there a deadline to register?

Register before November 12th at 11:59 pm to be guaranteed a t-shirt. You are welcome to register after that, but we can’t guarantee that there will be t-shirts available.

Online registration will be available through the end of the event. The team contest will end on Thanksgiving Day at 7:00 am so it can be announced from the stage.

How much does it cost to participate?

Registration is $30 for individuals 13+ and $15 for kids 12 and under. Register before November 12th to guarantee your t-shirt.

Sleep walkers and virtual walkers are $20 each. (No t-shirt)
