The Field Day Performathon is like a walkathon. CMC students and faculty sign up to perform and ask family, friends, neighbors, and/or local businesses to sponsor them by donating. All donations go directly to CMC scholarships and tuition assistance programs. Performathon participants can collect donations online through their online donation pages or through cash or checks.

For assistance with your online profile or collecting donations, contact Tammy Basso, Development Assistant at
