Red Raider Marching Band prepares for annual March-A-Thon

TYLER, August 12, 2014— The award-winning Robert E. Lee Red Raider Marching Band is preparing for their fourth annual March-A-Thon this week. The 2014 REL Band will parade through the neighborhoods surrounding Golden Road Park in Tyler. The five mile route will begin on the south side of Golden Road Park on McDonald Road and will end at Moore MST Magnet School.

The March-A-Thon is the Red Raider Marching Band’s largest fundraiser. Money raised will help pay for band expenses including the spring trip, band banquet and competitive marching season.

Band members are collecting pledges from family and friends for each mile they walk. Lawn concerts are also available for homes along the route for a minimum donation of $100. To donate, please contact Dilia Singly at dilia.singley@yahoo.com. For more information on the March-A-Thon event, please contact Robert Castillo, REL director of bands, at robert.castillo@tylerisd.org.
