What is the March-a-Thon?
The March-a-Thon is a fundraiser. The Mighty Mustang Band marches from J.J. Pearce out onto Mimosa, across Campbell (we have a police escort for the entire march), through the Tom Thumb and Home Depot parking lots, back across Campbell, through the Bike Mart and Sprouts parking lot, and back through the J.J. Pearce Addition and Estates North subdivision (Reservation), and then back to school.
Funds are raised by the students in the form of pledges, sponsorships, and the money we collect during the march. (We pass the hat along the way and usually have good success with cash donations from shoppers who stop and watch the band!)
Keep track of donations on the March-a-Thon pledge form (see link at top of page). Make contribution checks out to “PABC” and put them in the safe in the Band Hall. The PABC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and any contribution may be tax-deductible.
This march is a lot of fun and a lot of hard work for our students and our parent volunteers, but the rewards of hearing all the cheers from our neighbors as we march by makes it all worthwhile! Please volunteer to help. It takes all of us working together to make this a fun and safe event for the entire band.
Thank you very much for your continued support!
