Spell-a-thon

Spell-a-thons are a great way for elementary schools to raise lots of money with very little effort. All your school has to do is give a spelling test. Students accept pledges for every word they spell correctly on a 10-25 word test. Read more >

Hit-a-thon

Hit-a-thons are great for baseball and softball teams. Players accept pledges for each foot the ball is hit or the number of hits out of a fixed number of pitches. Hit-a-thon events can be tied to Opening Day activities or a team picnic. It's a fun way for parents to meet while raising money for the league. Read more >

Bike-a-thon

Bike-a-thon

Participants collect pledges for every lap or mile they ride. Make sure all participants wear helmets, and that first aid is available on site.

The chain of routes can cover part of a city, counties, from store to store, etc.
