  • A credit card, PayPal account, or check for your entire team's registration.

3. Captains, go to walkkansasonline.org to select your challenge and register your team.

Don't have a team?  No problem.  You CAN register as an individual to be placed on a team later.  However, if you do have a team then PLEASE let your team captain register you first. 

New this year! When captains register your team they have three options for registering the team.  It is important to remember that the team captain will pay for the entire team's registration.  Individual members will then need to reimburse the captain for their costs. 

  • Option 1:  T-Shirt + Registration- $18 each.  This will give every member on the team a t-shirt without having to pay sales tax. 
  • Option 2:  Baseball Tee + Registration- $23 each.  This will give every member on the team a baseball tee without having to pay sales tax. 
  • Option 3:  Program Registration Only- $9 each.  No members will receive a t-shirt, but have the option to buy t-shirts with sales tax later.

The program fee will be waved for school aged youth (high school aged and younger).
