I did not complete my registration, how can I finish my registration at a later time?
An email was sent to your attention with a code and a URL to allow you to restart the registration. If you click on the URL it will take you back to step 2 of registration, please confirm the data entered and continue your registration. You can also enter the code in the email at the bottom of the screen after you hit the blue “Register” button. If you no longer have the email, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating you need your start registration code and include your name, email and the Bed Race® that you are registering for.
I tried to sign in, but I do not know my user name and password, how do I get this information?
When you registered for the Bed Race, you were emailed a registration letter. This letter contains both your user name and password. When you sign in you can access both your personal profile page and your team page if you are the team captain.
Can I change my user name and password to something I can easily remember?
Yes, sign in and go to your profile page. From your profile page select *Login and hit enter. You can then change your user name and/or password.
I have a team called King Size, if donors go to my friend's page who is a team member of King Size and make a donation, will their donation count towards my team’s goal as well?
If someone donates to your friend's page then the funds will be counted towards their individual total and also the team totals.
If you would like donors to only see the team page, you need to go to your friend’s personal profile page and set the “Public profile page” to NO. You can do this by sliding the toggle switch under this field from YES to NO.
What should I do if nothing happens when I try to upload a photo to my fundraising page?
The ms-stride support team is available at email@example.com to upload your photo.The image is probably too large to upload.
How can my team fundraise for the Bed Race?
As a member of the Bed Race, YOU can help us reach our goal of $75,000 and compete to be the Highest Fundraising Team! We suggest teams set a goal to raise a minimum of $500 - helping to serve two families with a home full of furniture. When you sign up, you get a personalized fundraising webpage you can use to ask your friends, family, and others to donate to your Bed Race team.
