2-Day Walk FAQs
Will there be an in-person event for the 2021 2-Day Walk?
Yes- we are currently planning to be back at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis October 2-3 for the 2021 Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer. This is subject to all federal, state, and local mandates and guidelines concerning COVID-19.
Will there be any COVID-19 safety measures at the 2-Day Walk?
Yes- a full description of COVID-19 safety measures, including participant requirements (ie. mask requirements, etc.) will be provided closer to the event date, and will be based on federal, state, and local guidelines.
I already paid for a full registration for 2020, but can't participate in 2021. Is my registration refundable?
Unfortunately, no. All 2-Day Walk registrations (as stated in the registration waver) are non-fundable and non-transferable. Please email Linda at email@example.com for further information.
What percentage of my fundraising commitment do I have to be at in order to check-in at the walk?
50% of your fundraising commitment (50% of $1,000 for a 2-Day Walker, $750 for a Saturday Walker, or $500 for a Sunday Walk, respectively) is still required at check-in to participate in the 2-Day Walk.
Will I still have to share a hotel room in 2021?
It’s The Journey will be monitoring the COVID-19 recommendations. Our current plan is to have shared rooms like a normal 2-Day Walk experience.
What is the time commitment for a 2-Day crew member?
Crew members commit to staying on site for the entirety of the 2-Day Walk weekend. There is also a mandatory crew training that takes place the Friday night before the walk at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
If you cannot commit to being on site throughout the whole event, you can instead choose to serve as a day volunteer. Day volunteers commit only to 4 hour shifts, but unlike crew, they do not stay overnight at the hotel. For more information about day volunteers, please contact Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I want to crew the 2-Day. How do I get assigned to a specific 2-Day crew?
Once you have paid for your crew registration fee, you will email Ray at email@example.com to request a crew assignment. If you are a veteran crew member wanting to transfer to another crew, please email Ray for that as well.
Can I serve as a medical volunteer?
Thank you for your interest! Our medical services are provided by our Medical Sponsor, WellStar, and our podiatry services are provided by Ankle & Foot Centers of Georgia. They each fully staff our medical and podiatry teams, so we do not utilize outside medical volunteers.
If you are employed by WellStar and would like to volunteer to help at the 2-Day Walk Weekend, please speak to Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org to connect with the WellStar liason.
I'm on crew. Why do I have to have a valid license and proof of insurance on file with ITJ to drive during the 2-Day Walk weekend, even if I'm in my own vehicle?
Anyone employed by, affiliated with, or volunteering for It’s The Journey and the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer who is operating a vehicle (even if it is a personal vehicle) must have a valid license and proof of insurance. This is a requirement of our event and company insurance policy.
What are the requirements to be on the 2-Day youth crew?
In order to be on the youth crew, students have to be 10-15 years old at the time of the event, meet the $250 fundraising requirement, and have a parent or guardian who is participating as a 2-Day walker or crew.
All youth crew captains (adults who oversee youth crew students at all times) must have a background check on file with It’s The Journey.
