**UPDATE: Thanks to the incredible support from all of our friends and family so far, we reached our initial goal of $30,000. Thank you!!! Can you help us reach our stretch goal of $40,000?**
In spite of a summer without drum corps, Carolina Crown will remain active with its first ever fitness campaign: CrownFIT-A-Thon.
During this event, which spans the month of July, the members of Crown will earn points for completing exercises and other physical activities. The members have been organized into smaller, more concentrated groups composed of individuals from every section, to instill a sense of corps-wide teamwork. Each group will aim to earn as many points as possible to qualify for different prizes, which are available for teams and for high-achieving individuals.
In addition to staying physically active, the members have been tasked with reaching out to their friends, family, colleagues, and fans. It is our hope that those they contact will support them in this campaign by donating, and, therefore, help Carolina Crown carry on in 2021. As with the activity points, members can earn incentives for collecting donations.
To encourage full and enthusiastic participation, the Grand Prize is designed only to be earned with 100% participation from the membership, with both their activity point and financial goals met. Some brave members of TeamCrown - instructional staff, administration, and even members of the Board of Directors - will take the plunge into a dunk tank when the corps is all together again in 2021!
How Can I Help?
We need your help to continue to provide the powerful and enjoyable educational experience for which Carolina Crown is known. Though members shoulder a significant portion of the corps’s financial needs before the summer, over 60% of our operating expenses (food, travel, instruction) are covered solely by contributions from friends like you.
Losing the 2020 summer tour dealt a dramatic hit to our once regular source of revenue. Your donation will directly support Carolina Crown in its efforts to navigate a summer without the sights and sounds of the activity we’ve grown to love.
Thank you for helping Carolina Crown and its members reach their fullest potential, and for aiding us in our mission of Developing Lifelong Excellence.
