DSAG Dollars- This is the fundraising incentive program in place this year. DSAG Dollars can be redeemed for merchandise at Marketplace. DSAG Dollars are awarded $10 for each $250 raised. The top 3 fundraisers for Buddy Walk 2017 will be announced in the December DSAG newsletter and presented on stage at Buddy Walk 2018. Remember, you have until November 15, 2017 to continue fundraising.
Immediately following the walk at 2 pm, the
