Thunderstorm & Bad Weather Plan Provide information on the alternate/emergency location in case of bad weather
Donations Include information about turning in money
Donations The information tent will record every team donation so that the event-day fundraisers can be added to your team total. Give us at least two weeks after the event to process these figures and announce team totals for the year.
Good Stuff to Know! List other items that need to be considered, such as - EVERYONE needs to walk counter- clockwise around the track. People who “go against the flow” create dangerous situations very quickly. Trash and recycling collection is done non-stop throughout the day.
Good Stuff continued… All school rules are in effect for the duration of the event. Please be respectful of all in attendance. At least one team member from each team must be walking the track at all times.
Final Thoughts Take some time to talk with your kids about all of the things they learned by participating in Relay: responsibility, leadership, and compassion for others. These qualities last a lifetime, prepare them for the workforce, and are equally important to the money that we raise in the fight against cancer.
