When collectively and collaboratively working with DRUMSTRONG, you are guaranteed far greater return on your 'investment'.
Individuals, business owners and co-workers, religious institutions, Schools, Families and Neighbors can create Teams in honor of or in memory of someone and focus their 'per hour drumming' fundraising sponsorship efforts towards the cancer initiative of choice. It's personal.
Forming a Team is a great way to expand your impact. Click PLEDGE_LETTER for an example of a letter and sign-up sheet to assist your individual or group TEAM.
Create 'friendly competition' and see which team can enlist the most members, raise the most $, drum longer or maintain team representation in the Drum Circle.
Schools can also coordinate DRUMSTRONG Team participation; through club efforts, class projects, community service initiatives, Greek Life and athletic departments.

“PDS Lacrosse is doing something valiantly unique to help in the fight against cancer.
Most of us have been touched by cancer. In the Fall of 2009 we lost our beloved Kristina Brockmeier to breast cancer.
PDS Varsity Lacrosse formed 'Team DocBrock' to help sustain important local cancer initiatives through their athletic activities.
Support our efforts by sponsoring our games and raising funds for the cancer initiative(s) of your choosing.”
The Sponsors (Families, Businesses, Teachers, Students, Clubs, etc.) pick a category and assign a value, for example :: $100. per Touchdown, $50. per 1st down, Interception, Sack, Fumble Recovery, Goal, Save, Point, Strike Out, Home Run, Ace, 3-pointer, Take-down, etc. Get creative; it's win/win (even with a loss).
Announcements are made during the game ::
"Tonight, each Goal will be sponsored by “The Jones @ Smith Families”, each Interception sponsored by “The Coaches” (example), etc, going towards TEAM Levine Children's Hosp. season total goal of $10,000. to support the cancer initiative of their choice."
At the end of game, the tally will be announced, and at the end of the season, Media broadcasts the Team's accomplishments. (example :: "Through the generosity of our players and families, $10,000 was donated to support children battling cancer...").
