Coming back to you in October 2023!
Raise money while you play!
The Play-athon is for players of all ages and abilities.
Support Joe's M.I.L.L. by gathering sponsors and playing an instrument through the month of October.
Establish regular playing habits while supporting our efforts to increase access to musical instruments for everyone in the Greater Kingston area.
Participants can win great prizes!
How it works:
Step 1: Register and set your goal
Start by registering your participation.
Go to the Registration Form
Then set a goal to play regularly throughout October.
Playing every day will improve your skills greatly.
Playing at roughly the same time every day will make it easier to establish and maintain a practice routine.
Step 2: Ask for sponsors
These can be anyone (and everyone!): aunt in Guelph, brother in Seoul, friend next door.
Let your sponsors know what your goal is so that they know roughly how much money they’ll be obliged to give you at the end of the Play-athon.
Sponsors can commit to a $ amount per hour played or pledge a specific flat $ amount.

Step 3: Get playing
Record your playing time on your playing log.
If you are under 16, have a guardian initial each entry.
Time you spend in rehearsal with musical groups can count toward your goal.
Step 4: Add it up
At the end of the October:
Tally your playing time.
Collect the pledges from your sponsors.
