How to Register for Lauren’s Run

It’s time to register for the 23rd Annual Lauren’s Run and CURE Childhood Cancer Picnic on Sunday, April 23, 2017, at Concourse Office Park in Atlanta, GA. For those who may need a little help registering for the race, starting a race team, or joining a race team, please use this step-by-step guide to help guide you along. If you have any additional questions, please contact Munaa Shariff at Munaa@curechildhoodcancer.org.

Step 1: Get Started CLICK HERE to visit the Lauren’s Run online registration website.

 

Step 2: Register Now On the left-hand side of the screen, click “Register Now.” When the Waiver/Agreement opens up, click “I agree.”

 

Step 3: Select Registration Type On-screen you will see four options for registration:

  • Start a Team: Select this option if you would like to start your own race team, which others will be able to join. Members of your team will be able to fundraise independently, and all of your fundraising efforts will show up listed under your team name! You’ll be able to customize your individual registration/fundraising page as well as customize your team race page. You may also select to start a team AND register multiple people. Be sure to click “Start a Team” first.
  • Join a Team: Select this option if you know of an existing race team that you would like to join. You may register as an individual runner and will have the option to raise money as well. You may also select this option if you would like to join a team AND register multiple people. Be sure to select “Join a Team” first.
  • Join as an Individual: Select this option if you simply want to register as a single runner/walker for Lauren’s Run. You will have the option to raise money for Lauren’s Run, but it is not mandatory.
  • Register Multiple People: Select this option if you want to register multiple people at the same time. If you select this option, you will still be given the choice to register multiple people as individual runners, start a team, or join a team!

 

Step 4: Join as an Individual (Skip ahead to Step 5 or Step 6 if you are not registering as an individual) If you’ve already registered for ANY event using the website Friends Asking Friends or Sphere, you may log in to your account on this page. More than likely this will be your first time, so proceed with filling out the information on-screen to set up a login. You may also simply click one of the social media icons listed on-screen to use one of your existing social media account to create your login. This is a nice option if you don’t want to keep-up with another login! When you’re finished, click “continue.”

You will continue to the next screen, where you will fill out your personal information (such as name, age, etc.) as well as select the specific race you would like to register for.

You will also be given the option to make an additional donation and/or create a fundraising goal. Both of these steps are completely optional. When you’re finished, click “continue.”

Fill out your billing information and click “Continue.” Note: once you click “continue” your card will be charged.

The next page will show your registration/payment confirmation. When you click “continue” at the bottom of the page, you will be brought to your “My HQ” page where you will be able to customize your (optional) fundraising page. Please see Step #7 for information about how to edit your HQ.

 

Step #5: Join a Team (Skip ahead to Step 6 or Step 7 if this does not apply to you) Click “Join a Team.” On the next screen, a drop-down menu will appear, allowing you to select which existing team you would like to join. Click “continue.”

Step #6: Start a Team (Skip ahead to Step 7 if this does not apply to you) If you would like to be a Lauren’s Run team captain, select this option. When you start a team, your friends and family will be able to register as a runner and join your team. All of your (optional) fundraising efforts will still show up on your individual fundraising pages, but will pool together on your team page to show how your join efforts add up!

Click “Start a Team”  and new screen will open where you may enter your Team Name and some optional fundraising/registration goals.

Step #7: Edit Your Page in My HQ Once you’ve registered for the race, you may customize it under “My HQ.” Once you’re logged in, click “Build/Edit My Webpage” on the right-hand side of the screen.

On the following page, you may edit your headline, upload a custom picture, and customize your story. We recommend you add a personal note as to why you are racing and/or fundraising for Lauren’s Run. This will help your friends and family understand why CURE is so important to you, and could help inspire them to donate to your fundraising efforts! Just find the “Edit the text” field underneath the photo, and fill in your story here.

 

Your HQ also allows you to edit your profile information, send emails to your friends and family (asking them to help support your fundraising efforts), enter offline donations, etc. You can also click the link to share your efforts on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

 

Step #8: Fundraise for CURE While fundraising is optional, we encourage you to ask your friends, family, and coworkers to support your participation in Lauren’s Run! Thanks to the generous support of sponsors, 100% of funds raised at Lauren’s Run support CURE Childhood Cancer’s mission to find a cure for childhood cancer in our lifetime. Simply log in to My HQ, click “My Webpage,” click “View Personal Page” and copy your URL. Share this with your friends and family!

 

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, March 23rd at Lauren’s Run and the CURE Annual Picnic!
