Enjoy the Music and Show Your Support!

Join us the morning of Saturday, September 12, 2015 for Northgate High School's annual March-A-Thon! Walnut Creek's only Marching Band and Auxiliary will be parading through the Northgate neighborhood to raise funds for our school's instrumental music programs. Line the streets and cheer on the band. Walk or bike along the parade route. The March-A-Thon starts at 9:00 am at Burlington Way and continues along Castle Rock Road, Arbolado Drive, and surrounding neighborhood streets, before ending at noon with a celebration for the performers at Arbolado Park.

Parent Volunteers: We need help from all parents, whether or not your student is in Marching Band. Please access our Signup Genius link to claim one of our many Volunteer Jobs to support March-A-Thon. We need assistance distributing flyers in the Northgate neighborhood prior to the event, and on September 12, we need adults to accompany the marching students, do bike/traffic patrolling, and to help with our pizza party after the event! Contact March-A-Thon Coordinator Randy Wanser (925-209-5602) for more information or questions.

Come on out, enjoy the entertainment, and show your support at this fundraising event for Northgate. Tax-deductible donations are accepted at www.northgatehs-pfc.com/donateall.html or by mailing a check payable to NIMB, PO Box 30232, Walnut Creek CA 94598.
