A rock-a-thon is a fun filled day of amazing people (that includes you!!!) coming together to raise money for our families’ babies. The keyword in that description is fun! The first step is for you to form a team of anyone that is 11 years of age or older.
Each person will be encouraged to gather donations to participate. The donations will help with the operating expenses of CRADLE, a non-profit organization. CRADLE helps to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of anyone who is parenting or preparing to parent in Scott and surrounding counties. Examples of what we provide to families to meet their physical needs by providing supplies for babies and young children such as diapers, formula, wipes, clothing, baby food/cereal, bottles and cribs, car seats, etc. CRADLE has no income requirements and will assist anyone who may find themselves raising children, including foster parents or grandparents. CRADLE does this out of love for the families they serve and the belief that all children are special blessings.
Your team must keep your chair rocking at all times over the course of the four hours. This is truly a team effort as members trade places and encourage one another to keep on rocking! During their non rocking times team members will have other activities such as arts and crafts, Disney karaoke, best 80’s dance moves contest, trivia and more!
What you need to know before you sign up...
• This ministry is incredibly important to us and the community since 1994. Please take
the time to learn about CRADLE by visiting us at 501 Thomas Street, looking us up on
Facebook, or visiting our website (which is still very much a work in process).
• Each team is responsible for providing their rocking chair. However, we do not want
anyone to miss out simply because they do not have a chair. We have a limited number
that we can provide on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact CRADLE at 812 752-
6898 for more information.
