My company/business wishes to cover the cost to have some employees register for the Walk and wants to pay with the company credit card.  How do we do this?
What a great thing to provide your employee! Every year we have companies to contact us about this very thing. Unfortunately, the registration software does not allow us to do this, BUT we've come up with a Fix. Simply make a donation on this donation form for the total registration amount ($40 per employee). Next simply email us at walkoflife@joytolife.org to alert us that you've completed the donation form, being sure to make a note that this is for (company name) to pay for (quantity) employee registration fees. We will then recode this transaction to note it is really registration fees. Lastly, we will then set up a Discount Code that will be shared with you (along with instructions on how to use this code). You will simply share that code with the employees so they can use it to register themselves at no cost.
