1 Event Information Q: HOW LONG IS AIDS WALK MIAMI? A: AIDS Walk Miami is a 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) and takes roughly 1 to 1 ½ hours to complete. Volunteers with directional signs will be posted along the route which indicates the direction Walkers should take to return to the finish line at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. Q: WHAT IS THE SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY OF AIDS WALK MIAMI? A: 8:00 AM: Registration & Check-In (Registration/Check-In located at the Miami Beach Convention Center, 2000 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Florida 33139) 8:30 AM: Opening Ceremonies begin 9:00 AM: Walk begins 9:30 AM: Post-Walk Celebration at the Botanical Gardens Q: ARE PETS WELCOME AT THE WALK? A: The Walk is a pet-friendly event, provided your pet is friendly. Pet Friendly registration tables are located just outside the entrance of the Convention Center and are available for those with pets. Be advised a 5K Walk can be very hard on animals not accustomed to walking such distances, especially in the heat. While we take great measures to ensure that our Walkers don t suffer from heat exhaustion or dehydration, we do not have veterinarians or animal experts on-hand. Please keep your pet s best interests as your top priority! Q: WHAT IF I WANT TO RUN THE 5K, OR WHAT IF I AM A SLOW WALKER? A: Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate in the Walk in their own way but please recognize that if you run ahead of the police-supported road and lane closures, or fall behind the road closure schedule, the roads along the route will be open to traffic, and you will need to be on the sidewalk. In either case, please still be aware that you are participating at your own risk and be careful! General Information Q: WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

2 A: 100% of every dollar raised from AIDS Walk Miami supports the programs and services provided by Community AIDS Resource, Inc. d/b/a Care Resource, South Florida's oldest and largest HIV/AIDS community organization providing Primary Medical Care, Dental, Psychosocial, Case Management, Outreach and Prevention, Food Bank, Home Delivered Meals and Nutritional counseling and education to over 15,000 residents living in Miami-Dade and Broward counties who are either affected or infected with HIV/AIDS.

Additionally, fundraising participants of AIDS Walk Miami are eligible for incentive awards and prizes for their levels of support. Q: SHOULD WALKERS USE THEIR HOME OR WORK ADDRESS TO REGISTER? A: All walkers should register using their home address. If you must use your office address, make sure you put your company name, as often times the Post Office will return mail sent to an individual at a business address. Providing more than one address will result in a duplicate registration. Fundraising Q: WHAT SHOULD I DO TO START RAISING FUNDS FOR AIDS WALK MIAMI? A: A few simple suggestions to get started with your fundraising can be found below. For more fundraising ideas visit our Fundraising Tips & Tools page. Set up your Team or Individual Fundraising Web page. Then send out an to friends, family members, and co-workers. Each sent from your Web page contains a link to sponsor you online with a credit card.

4 Social Networking. Use sites such as Facebook and Twitter to ask your friends and other contacts for support. Write notes, share links that are news-worthy and related to the battle against HIV and by all means, share the link to your fundraising page! (Be sure that you are mindful of each site s anti-spam or solicitation policies.) Matching Gift Programs. Many corporate organizations have corporate giving programs that match the contributions their employees give to a charitable organization. By utilizing the matching gift programs of your employer or your family and friends' employers, you can quickly double or triple your fundraising dollars. Check to see if your employer participates in the corporate giving policy online now or ask your Human Resources representative to see if they have a matching gift program. Host a fundraising party or event. Ask a local bar or restaurant to donate their space for a happy hour or fundraising dinner party. Charge a flat admission or suggest a donation. Plan a raffle, contest, or drink special to make the night exciting! Awards and recognition! Give your Team Members an incentive to sign up, raise money and walk. Ask a local business to contribute to your team by providing an incentive prize or two and then create a contest within your team or group of friends to determine who will win it. Contest ideas include: most new team members enlisted, most fundraising requests sent using the web site, highest amount raised, or most original fundraising effort. Q: HOW ELSE CAN I SUPPORT AIDS WALK MIAMI? A: There are many opportunities for you to get involved in AIDS Walk Miami, from volunteering on the day of the event to becoming a corporate, gift or water stop sponsor. Even if you aren t in a position to sponsor the Walk, you may have contacts that are.

5 Q: HOW CAN I SEE WHO HAS DONATED TO ME? A: From the AIDS Walk Miami home page, click on the Main Login link under the MY HQ header along the left side of the screen.

Q: WHY AREN'T THE CASH AND CHECK CONTRIBUTIONS I'VE RAISED SHOWING UP ON MY PERSONAL FUNDRAISING WEB PAGE?

Donations of these types will only appear once they have been received and verified by Care Resource. Q: ALL OF MY DONORS ARE NOT SHOWING UP ON THE SCROLL MECHANISM. WHY? A: As your donors make a contribution, they have the option of whether or not they want to appear in the recognition scroll. Team Questions Q: WHAT ARE A TEAM LEADER'S RESPONSIBILITIES? A: To organize the creation and recruitment of your team members and motivate each of them to help meet your team s common goal. It is a time for meaningful camaraderie outside of the work or school environment; a great reason for friends and family groups to get together; a way to show support for those fighting HIV/AIDS; and a chance to walk in memory of loved ones. Q: WHAT IS A TEAM TABLE? A: A Team Table is a designated area in the Miami Beach Convention Center at which your Team can meet on the day of the event. Many Team Leaders decorate their tables with balloons in addition to bringing T-shirts and breakfast items for their team. To qualify for a Team Table on the day of the AIDS Walk, your team must have raised more than $1000 online no later than one week prior to the Walk. As space is limited, Teams who do not qualify for a Team Table can arrange their own location inside the Convention Center to meet on the morning of the Walk. If you have any additional questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to call us Mon Fri (8:30AM 5:15PM) at WALK (9255) or send us an to AIDS Walk Miami is a fundraiser for Care Resource, a 501[c](3) non-profit, multi-cultural, community based HIV/AIDS service organization.
