Frequently Asked Questions:

Will there be a walk with a large group of people on October 10?

Due to restrictions placed on large in-person gatherings in IL, we will no longer have a one day event on October 10th. HOWEVER - we've made our Walk4Animals better than ever, by reimagining it as a 4 month event in which we walk anytime and anywhere! Even though we can't all walk together, we can accomplish great things for ourselves and Anderson!

What regulations are suggested for participants?

Please be respectful of others around you as you participate in all aspects of Anderson's Walk4Animals. Be sure to wear a mask if you think you may pass within 6 feet of someone outside of your household, and don't forget to bring water to keep you and your pet hydrated while walking! BE KIND and STAY HEALTHY!

What prizes can I earn?

Fundraising goals and prizes change monthly. Click here to see this month's challenge!

How will participants receive their prizes?

 Walk4Animals participants who reach their goal will be contacted by email at the end of each monthly fundraising period. There will be at least two dates available each month for prize pick-up at Anderson's Administrative offices in St. Charles, IL. Shipping will be an option made available to participants out of the immediate Fox Valley area, for an additional postage fee. Staff will be wearing gloves and masks during the process. Further details will be sent by email. Good Luck!
