The fourth annual Red Raider Marching Band March-A-Thon is set for this weekend.

The Robert E. Lee High School band will parade through the neighborhoods by Golden Road Park from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, according to a news release.

The 5-mile route will begin on the south side of Golden Road Park on McDonald Road and will end at Moore MST Magnet School.

The event is the band’s largest fundraiser and helps fund expenses including the spring trip, band banquet and competitive marching season.

Members are taking pledges for each mile walked. Lawn concerts also are available for houses along the route for a minimum donation of $100.
