Walk fee for children?

Postby julie f » Fri Mar 03, 2006 01:58 pm

Question for you!

I've been asked if children under a certain age walk for free, or if they still need to pay the registration fee. Do we have a set policy on this, or is it varying from state to state?

Thanks!

I contacted kstevens about this issue because we also had the same questions arising in Indiana. Here is her reply:

"Basically if a child is "walking" and they want a t-shirt then we charged them the $15 - if not we suggested that they could make a donation for the child and the child would just walk. We don't have kids t-shirts so we sold mediums. We did charge every adult though. LOL"

I like that! :-)

In Philly last year the only children that paid and got a t-shirt were probably over the age of 8 or 9.

Thank you Kris for your information because we are going to make that our standard for here. It helps having members like you who have already done this once to bounce questions off of. :-)

In Georgia, we let kids under 10 walk for free, unless they want a t-shirt. Of course, we get a signed release for every person participating, even the infants.
