Frequently Asked Questions 

We held out hope that Craig’s 2020 Pedal 4 Possible (P4P) cycling event could take place in person, but due to the current status of local COVID-19 restrictions, we have decided that we must go “virtual.”  P4P is all about heart, and we didn’t want to host an event that would lack the Craig magic and potentially put you, our friends, at risk. While we are bummed that we won’t see your smiling faces in person, we know that this is the safest option for everyone.  

So what exactly does this mean? Check out our details below for everything you need to know about this change.



Registration & Your Participant Center

HOW MUCH IS IT TO REGISTER?

P4P FAQ VIRTUAL Registration Fee 2020-01.png



  • Registration includes a swag bag that will be mailed to you if you register before 9/1*. Inside you’ll find a custom Pedal 4 Possible BUFF band, a customizable bib, completion certificate, and more goodies. Only registered participants will receive a swag bag, so encourage everyone in your family to register!
  • *If you Register after 9/1, you will receive your swag bag after the event.

AM I REQUIRED TO FUNDRAISE IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE?

  • Fundraising is not required, but we strongly encourage each participant to raise money to support patients at Craig.  Plus, you'll earn fundraising prizes if you raise $300 or more by September 26! Use our Fundraising Guide to help maximize your fundraising efforts!

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ON A TEAM?  CAN I HAVE THE SAME TEAM AS LAST YEAR?

  • Teams must have at least two members.
  • Team captains have the ability to bring back last year's team when they login to register.

WHAT IS MY PARTICIPATION CENTER?  WHERE CAN I FIND IT?

  • Once you register, you will have access to an online fundraising center.  Customize your personal page with your Craig story and why you're raising money.  Use the online tools to send emails to help you reach your fundraising goal!

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL EVENT?

  • A virtual fundraising event combines a real-world activity with online elements. Instead of gathering together physically on September 19 to ride, we will celebrate what’s possible from our own homes and neighborhoods by doing any kind of recreational activity from Sept. 19-26. Participants are encouraged to use their Participant Center tools and our Fundraising Guide to continue to raise money to support Craig Hospital.

WHAT IF I'M ALREADY REGISTERED?

  • We will automatically apply the $30 difference between a standard adult registration fee and the virtual registration to your fundraising total—giving you a jump start on your goal!  You will receive your swag bag filled with goodies via mail. 

WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE WEEK OF THE EVENT?

  • We will kick-off our week of action with a video opening program on September 19. You will have until September 26 to complete your activity. Prefer to get it done in one day?  Great!  Do you want to take it slow-and-steady? That’s fine too!  You get to create your own rules—as long as you’re done with your activity and your fundraising by September 26.

    Throughout the week, we encourage you to take and share photos and videos of your activity on your own social media accounts using the hashtag #P4P20. Tell your networks WHY you are participating! Be sure that you are demonstrating physical distancing and are wearing a face covering (according to your local regulations) in your photos! We will highlight some of these pics and participant stories during Pedal 4 Possible week on Craig’s social media channels.

    To encourage participation, we have created some fun contests. The more you are involved, the more chances you have to win some great prizes!

WHAT IF I DON'T CYCLE? WHAT TYPES OF ACTIVITIES CAN I DO?

  • There is no limit to what is possible! Choose an activity that is meaningful to you. Ride, walk, roll, or recreate in your neighborhood. You can do whatever you’d like, as long as you are following your local community’s physical distancing and face-covering guidelines.

WILL YOU BE TRACKING OUR MILEAGE?

  • No, it is up to you to choose an activity and hold yourself accountable for its completion. That said, we encourage you to set a goal for yourself (i.e. to roll around your neighborhood for two miles every day or ride 100 miles), and share this goal with your support system and on your fundraising page. Consider asking your donors to give you a certain amount per mile that you commit to finishing!

IS THERE ANYWHERE I CAN CONNECT WITH OTHER PARTICIPANTS?

  • YES! New this year, we have set up a private Strava club and Facebook group just for P4P participants! Within these groups, participants can share their stories, activities, and cheer each other on! We may be physically distanced, but we will be more connected than ever via social media. We want to see what YOU are doing to recreate. Make sure you tag your photos and updates with #P4P2020 so we can see it!  Click HERE for step-by-step instructions on joining our Strava club! 

I'M A LOCAL. CAN I STILL RIDE THE PEDAL 4 POSSIBLE ROUTE?

  • Yes, you can still ride the original Pedal 4 Possible courses, but keep in mind there will be no course markings and no course support. You will be fully responsible for knowing your route and taking care of your needs. Please DO NOT park at PEARL iZUMi or enter their property.

CAN I REGISTER MORE THAN ONE PERSON AT A TIME?

  • Yes! You may register multiple participants in one registration payment. Please make sure you have accurate Jersey/Summit Top sizes.  You will not be able to register additional participants after the registration is complete. NOTE:  As long as you have used separate emails for each participant, everyone registered will have access to their own personal page in the Participant Center.

I REGISTERED BUT NOW I CAN'T ATTEND.  CAN I GET A REFUND?

  • We are happy to transfer your registration to another participant, but we cannot offer a refund for any reason.

I REGISTERED LAST YEAR, BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER MY PASSWORD.  HOW DO I RESET IT?

Donations

HOW MUCH OF MY DONATION WILL BENEFIT CRAIG PATIENTS? 

  • Pedal 4 Possible provides patients with spinal cord and brain injuries with unique programs that challenge the status quo of typical rehabilitation. These Culture of Care programs, like Therapeutic Recreation, Community Reintegration, and Assistive Technology, are vital to patients’ holistic rehabilitation and help them rebuild a life filled with possibilities. But these programs are not covered by insurance! They rely on participants like YOU. One hundred percent of every dollar that you raise through your Pedal 4 Possible fundraising goes directly to Craig’s Culture of Care fund. The event is planned entirely by an interdisciplinary team of Craig therapists and Foundation staff members. The result? An event with heart—a personal, intimate experience infused with Craig magic. Maybe you’ve felt the power of Craig’s Culture of Care yourself as a patient or family member. Maybe you’ve heard the stories of so many who go through Craig and want to help. Whatever your passion, whatever your reason, Craig’s Culture of Care could not exist without generous people like YOU. Thanks for participating!

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A MATCHING GIFT WITH MY EMPLOYER?

  • Company matching is a great way to make your fundraising dollars go further! Please speak with a representative from your company's Human Resource department for more information.  Our EIN is 23-7352287.

WILL I RECEIVE A RECEIPT FOR MY DONATION?

  • If you make an online donation of $250 or more, you will receive a receipt for tax purposes in the mail. 
  • Donations made online under $250 will be acknowledged via email. Please contact us if you need a copy for your files.
  • Donations of any amount made offline will receive an acknowledgement letter in the mail.
