March-a-Thon 2022

What is a March-a-Thon?

This event will take place during our regularly scheduled band camp.  Students will march the equivalent of 50 laps around the football field throughout the morning.  In addition, they will partake in team building activities, games, and other events.  

  • WHEN: Friday, August 12 from  8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • WHERE: Easton Area High School band field
  • DONATIONS DUE: Wednesday, August 10
  • WHY: The money we raise during this event will help to offset the costs of maintaining our instrumental program and ensuring we can afford future years many wonderful opportunities.  Specifically this year, the March-a-Thon will also help get our jazz band students to Germany in the spring of 2023.  Our goal for this fundraiser is $6,000!  We need everyone’s help to achieve this goal!

We Need YOU

We are asking every student to find sponsors for this event!  If every student found $20 in sponsorships, the IMA would receive nearly $6,000.  It costs the IMA approximately $80,000 annually to support instrumental music at Easton Area High School.  This money goes towards the following:  

  1. Marching Band (including band camp, parades, competitions)
  2. Strings Camp (including guest clinicians, food)
  3. Guest Clinicians throughout the year for all students
  4. Equipment purchases (as needed to support the growing program)
  5. Instrumental Music Banquet & Senior Recital
  6. Meals (at various points throughout the year)
  7. Scholarships for graduating seniors (six $1,000 scholarships)
  8. Performances Tours for the Instrumental Music Department
