Can I bring my family or friends to the event?
Yes, family, friends, neighbors, and anyone else are welcome. This is a great community event that will raise money for orphaned children. We want to build a strong network of caring people to participate in the walkathon, so you are welcome to persuade anyone who might be interested to join us and to in turn raise money from their friends, family and co-workers, too. They can email us to get a sponsorship form at firstname.lastname@example.org or they can download a form from this website.
Where can I find parking at the event?
If you are coming by car, there are a few parking lots near the park. Prices are approximately NT$50 per day. For scooters there are designated parking spaces near the park entrance that cost NT$20 per day. A park official will approach you for payment when you park your scooter.
How do I collect the money?
You can collect the money before or after you complete the walk — whatever is most convenient for you and for the people giving you money. We ask that each person who sponsors you should sign their name on the form to confirm that they have paid.
How do I hand over the money I raised?
We’ve instituted an easy process for transferring sponsor money to the AmCham orphans fund. Please don’t bring your sponsor money to the event. Within a week after the event, simply transfer your sponsor money to the special walkathon account we have set up.
How will the money raised be used?
The money raised will go to the Hsiang Shang Children’s Social Welfare Foundation (The Christian Herald Orphanage and the Daniel A. Poling Memorial Babies Home) to fund their orphan high-school education program and a program delivering milk and juice at lunch to these and other kids.

What if I want to get an official receipt for the money I have donated?
