How do I get my Knit Hat and wearable light?

What's the difference between "General Participant" and "Family"?

General Participant is designed for the majority of participants who are signing up to participate alone, or to join or start a team. This is for anyone over the age of 12 who will be fundraising.

Family is for families/groups that include kids under 12 who likely won’t be fundraising. This is perfect for two parents plus 2-4 children who only need 1 fundraising page but want to ensure everyone gets a hat and light up bracelet.
