Can my family members walk with me without registering?

No, everyone at Pink on Parade and the route must register and sign a waiver and release of liability as part of the registration process. This is crucial for the safety of the participants and allows The Pink Ribbon Place, a Riverside Community Health Foundation program, to measure the event's growth each year.

How far is the walk?

We have TWO routes for ONE cause: a beginner 1.8K Family Fun route around the park and an intermediate 5K Mt. Rubidoux route going up the mountain.

It is a fun way for friends and families to come together and honor or support someone who has been touched by breast cancer.

Is there a minimum fundraising goal?

No, we encourage Pink on Parade participants and our teams to set a self-imposed fundraising goal - we do not place a goal for you.

What are Team Prizes, and how do we win?

We want to encourage you to build amazing and supportive teams, so we are giving away a few prizes to the following categories:

  • Team that Raises the Most Dollars - This prize goes to the team that collectively raises the most dollars for the event! As a Team Captain, your role is to rally supporters and encourage them to fundraise on their own. All dollars that they raise go toward your Team total! That means if you have 10 team members and each member raises $100, you will have a team total of $1000! Totals will be tallied up once the walk begins, so donations received after the walk will not be counted towards the prize but are still welcomed.
  • Most Spirited Team - The day of the event is about having fun and lots of spirit. Sport your Pink in any way possible. Be creative, cheer your team, and you could win the most spirited prize!

Want to increase your odds of winning?  Encourage your team to share their fundraising pages and donate online at!

How are Team Prize Winners chosen?

We understand that being a Team Captain requires dedication, so we strive to be as fair as possible. All Team Winners will be announced during the closing ceremony.

  • Team that Raises the Most Dollars—Totals will be tallied up once the walk begins, so all donations must be received by the event day to be counted toward this prize. Donations received after the walk will not be counted toward this prize, although they are still welcomed!
  •  Most Spirited Team – Our event committee will choose the winner of this prize on the day of the event.

How do I register as a volunteer, and how much does it cost?

Registering as a volunteer is FREE! Visit our website at and click the “volunteer” link in the top menu. For more information on volunteering, please email

What do volunteers do?

Your job will vary depending on how much time you can commit to the walk. The Pink Ribbon Place will try to place volunteers in areas that interest them, but these volunteer positions are not guaranteed. Volunteers will be placed in age-appropriate positions where there is a need. Volunteers cover areas wherever support people are needed the most. Many volunteers are also needed in the days leading up to the event to support staff in various roles.

What is the difference between a volunteer and a walk participant?

A volunteer will support Pink on Parade and event staff in the days leading up to the event, the day of the event, and post-event. Volunteers do not walk in the event but rather support the walkers in many ways such as helping them with registration, on the route at water stations, and many other areas of Pink on Parade. Volunteers are essential to making the day of the event run smoothly. Walk Participants are strictly there to participate in the walk. However, Participants and Volunteers can participate in the festivities at the end of the walk.

What is volunteer training?

We are looking for leads to attend training before the walk day for those volunteers who are capable and available. Volunteers will learn the basic process of their area and lead other volunteers for a seamless walk experience. Training dates will be posted on our website at Please register as a volunteer on our website to receive emails on upcoming training dates and other important volunteer information.
