In my thirteen years of coaching, I have never had a fundraiser with so much success than I have had with Hour-A-THon. I have tried candy, clothing lines etc. etc. and nothing has brought in the profits as this. The Hour-A-Thon brought my track and field program over $16,000 in ONE HOUR of work. The set-up is easy! The kids do All of the work, and most enjoy the actual exercise, and you get to utilize what the kids do best which is text!! I’ve seen many of my kids reconnect with family members and friends while just reaching out for support during this exercise. It’s very important for kids these days to learn how to talk and carry a conversation on a phone with someone they know or may not know. I like how my kids are out front talking about our Pearland Oiler track program and the excitement they share for the upcoming season. They take pride in it and this gives them a sense of ownership. I recommend this fundraiser to every coach I come into contact with!!
