Now Selling Online: Multi-Walk Cards and Golden Boots Cards

We are now selling Multi-Walk Cards and Golden Boots Cards online during walk registrations.

When you have insufficient trips remaining to participate in a walk you are registering for you will be prompted to purchase a new card, and a new card of five trips will be credited to your account. Cards will no longer be issued as paper cards.
