How it Works:

1— Pick what you’re fundraising for, and your goal amount.

2— Set a goal for how many boards you think you can break in just 1 minute.

The average child age 3 to 6 will break 20 boards in a minute. Kids 7—12 can break from 25—80 boards in a minute. Adults can break between 50—125 boards in a minute.

3— Mark the Board-Break-A-Thon on your calendar! (scroll down for the dates)

4— Ask friends & family to support you by donating.

5— After funds come in, earn prizes from the prize sheet! Turn in your cash each week to the front desk with a ‘Student Receipt’ for EACH donation.

6— Ask your instructor for your online donation print-out each week.

7— Track your donations using the Student Tracking sheet.

8— Attend the Board Break-A-Thon and SMASH your boards!

9— Follow up with everyone that sponsored you to tell them how you did. Collect the money from those that made pledges based on how many boards you would break.

10— Use your funds (applied as credit) toward your training goals!
