Money raised from the event go toward helping the band participate in marching competitions during the fall semester and reducing the cost of students attending such competitions and taking a spring trip to Orlando.
The March-A-Thon is to begin at 9 a.m. at the Paschal Band Hall at Forest Park Boulevard and Berry Street.
The band will play along the route and perform mini-concerts at about 10 a.m. at Bluebonnet Circle and at about 11:30 a.m. at Foster Park. After the march, the band will give a short concert at about noon at the Tom Thumb store at Hulen Street and Bellaire Drive. Download the 2012 March-A-Thon Map
