RIDE THE TOUR
There are two steps to register: 1) registration form with payment and 2) setting up your fundraising page:
  1. Go to treefund.org/tourdestrees and click on “Access the 2018 Tour”
  2. Click “Register”
  3. Put a “1” in the “Rider” row that has the number of days you want to ride and the type of room you want (double or single). Double rooms are included with registration; single rooms are $100 per night.
  4. Scroll down and complete the rest of the form, sign the waiver, and make your payment.
  5. When you hit “Submit,” you will get an on-screen message verifying your registration. Soon afterwards, you will get an email at the email address you used to register with instructions on how to set up your fundraising page. (If you don’t see this email, check your spam folder).
  6. Follow the email’s instructions to go to http://2018-tour-des-trees.everydayhero.do/, scroll down to “Set up your fundraising page” and choose the link describing your participation. This takes you to the “Create Your Fundraising Page” page.
  7. If you already have an Everyday Hero account, simply log in. If not, then put your first and last name for “Page Title” and “Your Name.” The “Raise Target” will automatically fill in with your fundraising minimum for the number of days you’re riding.

  8. Follow the prompts to upload a photo of yourself, customize your story (i.e., tell us why you’re riding), share your page on social media, and, if you wish, donate to kickstart your campaign. NOTE: When you or others donate to your ride, after you input the donation amount, there is a checkbox asking if you’d like to cover the donation/processing fees. This is completely your choice if you’d like to do this.
  9. When your fundraising page is complete, click “Join an Existing Team” and choose your team. NOTE: You may “Create a New Team” if you wish, but by doing so, you automatically become the team captain with additional responsibilities.
