Did you know that Ray Graham Association must raise more than $1.8 million every year to keep their programs running?

By participating in The Monarch Walk, I’m going to help them reach that goal and ensure that they are able to continue providing their plethora of vital services.  On Sunday September 24th, I’ll join over 400 RGA supporters, people supported by the organization and their families, as well as RGA Team Members to celebrate our fundraising success and walk in support of the organization.

Ray Graham Association was named after the late Ray Graham, the first Director of Special Education in Illinois and an innovator and pioneer in the field of developmental disabilities services.

Thank you for helping me reach my goal so that the thousands of people served by Ray Graham Association can continue to receive these crucial services!   

Founded in 1950, Ray Graham Association for People with Disabilities is a non-profit organization that provides a broad array services and supports for nearly 2,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Services include Residential, Employment, Life Skills, Recreational, and Family Support at many locations throughout DuPage County and the surrounding area.

I did it! I created a team for The Monarch Walk benefiting Ray Graham Association (RGA).  On Sunday, September 24th, this awesome event will gather hundreds of people including those served by RGA, their families, RGA Team Members, and friends of the organization, like me, to walk in support of their mission and then celebrate at the After Party. 

Did you know that Ray Graham Association must raise more than $1.5 million every year to keep their programs running?

Won’t you join me in helping RGA raise the necessary funds to continue providing these essential services to the thousands of people that they support?  Join my team and let’s shatter the team’s fundraising goal, ensuring that RGA will be able to continue serving those thousands of people with disabilities.
