Tips for Raising Money

Don't forget to ask everyone you meet to support you in the Ray School Walk-a-Thon. Ask them for $10 or $20 - small amounts can make a difference! Ask not only your co-workers, family and friends, but your hair dresser or barber, your mail carrier, your clients, your baker, your favorite store owners and others you interact with regularly. Pledges may be made by anyone with one exception: please do NOT ask for pledges from any of the staff members of Ray School -- they already give so much to our students.

Attire

Be sure to bring your water bottle, and wear comfortable shoes and clothing, along with sunglasses and a hat or other sun protection. You may want to bring rain gear too. This is a rain or shine event!
