We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions regarding the event.
The Crawl always takes place third weekend of July. (July 13-16, 2023)
Registration begins annually on April 1st and is done online using this website.
Absolutely! The participant that raises the most money wins the coveted “Hope Award” and is honored during Saturday’s banquet.
Additional passengers cost $25.00 each. There is a maximum of five people total per vehicle. Children under 15 years old may attend for free but please include them with your registration so we can plan for them.
100% of the net profits you contribute go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Upper Midwest Chapter. The Organizing clubs are non-profit organizations and all of their time is donated. Event costs are covered by our corporate sponsors.
The event is rain or shine. Please pay attention to weather forecasts and plan accordingly! Our banquet and bbq dinners are held under a very large tent to shelter us from any inclement weather.
They range from easy to extremely difficult. We will help you find a trail on the day of the event. Trail Guides will also help you in choosing and navigating trails. In fact, we encourage stock vehicles with inexperienced drivers to come and see what off-road trail riding is all about.
Although our numbers continue to grow, we have yet to turn away a single participant. We do request that you do pre-register so can plan for food, t-shirts, etc. to be sure everyone has a great experience at the event. Sending $50.00 acts as the registration fee and the remaining $200.00 minimum donation is due at check-in (or via the online donation tool).
Yes! Grab your friends and/or fellow club members and form your own team to maximize your fund-raising and fun! Get creative and consider doing team fund-raising events, create team t-shirts or whatever else you can think of to have fun and raise more money to help fight MS!
The minimum donation is $250.00 per vehicle which includes a driver & passenger, (we encourage you to bring a passenger to help as a spotter while on the trails). While you can certainly pay this fee out of your pocket, we encourage participants to raise the money by asking for donations from friends, family, co-workers, sponsors, company matches, or any other creative fundraising you can come up with. Remember: $250 is the minimum donation. The more money you raise, the better!
$50.00 of that $250.00 is a non refundable registration fee that you pay upon registration to reserve your spot. The remaining $200.00 represents the minimum amount raised via pledges that you collect with pledge forms or via your online donation page. Pledge Forms and other documents can be found here. Obviously you’re encouraged to collect as many pledges as possible. We will have access to the online donation site at the event to give you credit for the money you raised using this great new tool.
The entry fees get you into the event, puts your name in the drawing for prizes, and gets you & passenger(s) dinner on Friday and Saturday night at the event headquarters. Each driver will also receive a commemorative Crawl 4 the Cure T-Shirt.
Note: The $30 camping fee is in addition to the $250 entry fee and is required for each registered vehicle staying at the campground regardless of site/camper sharing. This is paid for at the time of registration making the total registration fee $80 per vehicle.
No, lodging is not included in the base $250 donation entry fee. We reserve the entire Sherwood Forest Campground for our use during the event and we strongly encourage everyone to camp with us, if there is room. There is a fee of $30 per registered vehicle as shown on the registration form for camping. If you decide to stay at a different campground, local hotel, or other facility, those accommodations will be up to you to arrange.
Note: Due to limited space at Sherwood Forest campground we have to limit on-site camping to the first 100 registrants. Once we reach that limit, we will let everyone know and additional participants will need to make alternative lodging arrangements in the area.
A special thanks to our gold level sponsors.
