How can I become a volunteer?
With no paid staff, Flock Cancer Idaho is entirely dependent on the hard work of generous volunteers. If you would like to lend your time or expertise, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is my registration fee tax-deductible?
Yes! Flock Cancer Idaho is a registered 501(c)(3) corporation, and registration as well as donations above registration costs are all tax-deductible.
What if it rains?
Our north end is well covered with nice shade trees which might block some weather, but this is a ‘rain or shine’ event! Please dress accordingly.
Are there any COVID precautions being taken?
Open participation time window helps us to have fun, at a distance. We encourage non-vaccinated participants to bring a mask.
When is the Stroll?

How long is the Stroll?
Harrison Boulevard is one mile long, so the loop is 2 miles. There are crossing opportunities along the course should you choose to take it easier. We hope you enjoy the stroll, interact with all the cheering stations and enjoy the sponsor booths along the way as well! Reminder, the loop is CLOCKWISE along the boulevard!
How are Survivors recognized?
Survivors will get a Survivor sash, a medal, and a collectable Founder’s pin. We are introducing the Founder’s Pin this year, which can be pinned to your sash and collected through the years to commemorate your participation. Each year the pin will have a different flower with a special meaning. Each Survivor will also ring the bell as they walk through the Survivor arch to recognize their journey, and to receive their medal.
