Sunnyvale Raider Pride Band"March-A-Thon"Saturday August 19th, 2017
The Sunnyvale Raider Pride Band “takes it to the streets” during the 3rd annual March-A-Thon on Saturday, August 19th. This community-wide event is the band’s back-to-school kickoff and premiere fundraising function that brings together neighbors, teachers, parents, students, children, school district leaders, and city leaders to celebrate the start of the new school year.
WHO: All Sunnyvale Raider Band members participate in March-A-Thon, including our wonderful incoming freshmen!
WHAT: A back-to-school kickoff and fundraiser that gives the band visibility in Sunnyvale as we delight our neighbors with great music, and marching.
WHEN: Saturday, August 19th from 9 am to noon.
WHERE: We will march and play through three Sunnyvale neighborhoods
WHY: Fun and fundraising! Our goal is for each band member to obtain sponsorship pledges of $100. With every family’s help, we’ll raise a good portion of our annual budget in one morning. In order to help maintain lower fees, provide school-purchased instruments and band scholarships, we are also soliciting donations from our Sunnyvale neighbors and local businesses. The band will also be accepting donations that morning. We hope all of our SHS neighbors will come out and support the band as we march through the streets of Sunnyvale.
Front Yard Concerts - Want a front row seat to see the band play? The band will stop to play a song in your front yard for you and your neighbors. You will also get a picture with the band and an up-loadable video of your concert that you can share on Facebook etc.
Concerts are $100 and only ten (10) are available!!!

ROUTE INFORMATIONJust as last year Sunnyvale HS band will divide this March A Thon into three similar separate sections: 1st Stone Canyon Division, 2nd Homestead Division, and 3rd the M-Street Division. We will use transportation and trailer to move from one area to the next. Below is a detailed map of the route (very similar to last year) for each of the sub-divisions.
