Covid-19 Questions

We hope you are all keeping well - here are the five most common questions we are hearing right now related to COVID and the event.


Is TGP postponed?

Yes, it was scheduled for June, but postponed until September 19, 2020. COVID-related health risks and operational challenges won't permit us to assemble in large groups. So instead, we will gather and self-organize on our own in smaller, COVID-friendly teams or groups of teams as permitted.


Are there still locations?

Yes and No. When you register online, you will select a location and the TGP charity you are fundraising for. This will help us all stay in community, encourage friendly inter-city competition, and help us manage t-shirt distribution effectively. But, on September 19 you won't gather with hundreds of other walkers - instead you and your team will agree on a route, distance, and start time, and gather together in a Team Walk.


Do I have to walk with my team?

No, and it's okay if you don't want to. Your personal safety in the midst of COVID is critical. You can register, join a team of friends, and fundraise with them if you'd like, but on September 19 you are free to walk on your own if that's what you prefer. The COVID rules for gathering are in constant flux (as are our own preferences) so do what's best for you!


When is The Grand Parade and when does it launch?

Event Day is Saturday, September 19 and we officially re-launch the 2020 campaign on August 1. If your team can't walk on Event Day, you are free to walk a week or two earlier.


When can charities register for TGP 2020?

We'd love to talk to your charity about being part of The Grand Parade! Reach out to us any time before August 15 - email jen@blueseafoundation.org for details or read more here.
