Walk Attire 

You will be receiving your Dogs4Diabetics Walk t-shirt when checking in the morning of the event, be sure to put it on and wear it with pride! Wear comfortable shoes and clothing, along with sunglasses and a hat or other sun protection... you may want to bring a light jacket too, you never know in California. 

Tips for Raising Money

Don't forget to ask everyone you meet to support you in your 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 hairdresser or barber, your mail carrier, your kids' teachers, your clients, your baker, your favorite store owners and others you interact with regularly. See DoJiggy's Participant Fundraising Library for fundraising ideas and tips, sample letters, a detailed User Guide to the Participant Control Panel, and more!
