Tips for Raising Money

Don’t forget to ask everyone you meet to support you in your fundraising efforts. 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 kids’ teachers, your clients, your baker, your favorite store owners, and others you interact with regularly. Utilize social media and raise funds even faster!


Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing, along with sunglasses and a hat or other sun protection. You may want to bring rain gear too. We will have ponchos available in the event of rain. This is a rain or shine event!
