How can I make sure the donation I’m sending will be credited to my team?
Please include the name of the participant you are supporting in the memo area of the check. If you are supporting a team more generally, please include the team name in the memo area, and be aware that team donations are credited to the team captain for bookkeeping purposes.

My donation didn’t go through, or isn’t showing up on the webpage. What should I do?
Please be patient. Donations typically take a couple of hours to show up on the website. If you have already waited to see if it will display, contact Annie at 612-822-0500! We want to make sure all of your hard work and generous donations show up on your page within a reasonable amount of time.
My donation was applied to the wrong person. What should I do?
If your donation is showing on the website, but it is not credited to the intended participant, please email or call us, and we will be happy to fix it (email Annie at email@example.com or call her at 612-822-0500).
My registration fee didn’t show up as part of my fundraising total. Is it a tax-deductible donation?
Your registration fee will be used to support MOCA and our research funding, support and programming -100 percent. However, because the participant is “getting” event registration in exchange, the fee is not tax deductible, and won’t count towards a fundraising total. This is still an important contribution, and we are so glad to have you registered for the event.
What information will I be able to keep for next year?
All the information (text, photos, contacts, and anything else) on your Personal Fundraising Page will be stored there for next year. Please move anything you would like to keep onto your Personal Page from your Team Page.
Are dogs welcome at the walk? Yes, but they are your responsibility.
What happens if it's raining? This is a rain or shine event. If the weather turns stormy, please check our social media channels for up to date information: Facebook: Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance and Twitter:@mnovarian.
