Your email looks like you are from NY too. Click on your state and area and see when/where, etc. It will tell you how to raise/donate money. My son does the diabetes biking here in central NY and he registers and takes pledges online or in person. Last year he raised over $2,000 for diabetes research biking 100 miles. I cannot walk because of my knees and I see none in this area anyway. But I would be happy to donate to your walk - let me know the link! I believe you can leave the link here but if not - I will email you my address or ?
