Texas AEPi Rock-A-Thon
Rock All Day and Night to Strengthen the Fight
Welcome to Texas Alpha Epsilon Pi's largest philanthropy event, Rock-A-Thon!
Rock-A-Thon is a 24 hour event where one member of our fraternity sits in a rocking chair for an entire day in order to raise money to fight childhood cancer. Throughout the day, we have live music, food, games, speakers, and more all on the UT campus while brothers ask for donations across the city of Austin and the state of Texas.
Every school day, 46 kids are told they have cancer. Additionally, less than 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding is dedicated towards childhood cancer. Cancer, specifically childhood cancer, is sadly something that affects us all in some way, shape, or form.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation (Be Positive), an organization dedicated to ending childhood cancer. In order to accomplish this mission, they provide financial assistance to families of children with cancer and fund research to find a cure, all while raising awareness for their cause.
The Fifth Annual Rock-a-thon will begin in 2020 and rock on for 24 hours. The event will be on the West Mall located of The University of Texas at Austin Campus. Leading up to and during the 24 straight hours of rocking, the brothers of AEPi will solicit donations by canning across the city of Austin and the state of Texas. Last year we raised over $10,000, and this year we are setting a goal of $15,000.
