Amman-a-thon

Amman Imman invites schools and groups to help bring water and other humanitarian aid to Niger?s Azawak Valley by hosting an Amman-a-thon.

The Amman-a-thon is a fundraising event that unites fitness and philanthropy. Students gain athletic proficiency while raising awareness and funds to support sustainable sources of water in the Azawak Valley. Through their practice, they express their compassion and have a direct impact on the lives of children and families who suffer from water scarcity.

An Amman-a-thon can be tailored for different age groups. Younger students may choose activities like hopping on one leg, twirling a hula hoop, throwing bean bags, jumping rope, etc. Older students might want to run laps, shoot baskets, or do sit-ups or push-ups. The most effective Amman-a-thons are designed by students in partnership with their teachers. Students prepare by practicing and asking friends and family to sponsor them through pledges. On Amman-a-thon Day, working with a partner, they count the number of repetitions of an activity they do in a given time. Based on that number and their pledges, they collect contributions from their sponsors following the event.
