The annual “March-a-thon” is an EMU Marching Band tradition that has become a cherished event of the Ypsilanti community. Each fall, members of the Eastern Michigan University Marching Band parade through Ypsi streets and neighborhoods to share pride and spirit through music. The donations we receive are used to enhance the student experience and supplement the annual budget for instruments, equipment, maintenance, and travel—this year is no exception.
In 2020, with the help of our generous donors, the EMU Marching Band was able to secure brand new trumpets and trombones for our students. Our 2021 goal is to replace many of our alto and tenor saxophones, which are worn beyond repair.
We invite you to join in our 100th Homecoming Celebration and help us achieve our goal - just $100 from 100 people.
