Get on the Ball
Get on the Ball was started by the Zeta Beta Tau Brothers of the Beta Zeta Epsilon Chapter at the University of Maryland – College Park. Designed to create a fun, worthwhile way of raising funds for charity, this event quickly became not only a chapter favorite, but also something that the campus community at the university looked forward to each year.
In its simplest form, Get on the Ball is the process of rolling a ball 6 feet in diameter around campus to collect signatures for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Funds can be raised through a number of ways, including:
- Pledges from surrounding businesses to donate a set amount of money per signature on the ball.
- Donations from businesses to sponsor the event.
- Donations to specific areas of the event such as T-shirts or the purchase of the ball.
- Donations from individual signees at the time of signing the ball.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has been an official philanthropy of ZBT’s since 2002.
