BENEFITING: Education Through Music
ORGANIZER: Education Through Music
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
On November 6th, I will run the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon to raise money for Education Through Music (ETM). This year ETM is celebrating 25 years of providing music education as a core subject to thousands of children who would otherwise not have access to quality music education.
59% of New York City K-8th grade schools do not have a full-time certified music teacher, and only 30% of students participate in music instruction. Music was a big part of my life (hence my music degree) and has continued on to my son. I truly want to help these kids have the same opportunities that Will and I have had.
I am very excited to participate in the NYC Marathon. I’ve committed to raising $2,500 for ETM in order to gain a spot in the marathon. I’m asking friends and family to consider sponsoring me for this event, to help me reach my fundraising goal, and in turn, to help thousands of students reach their goals in school and in life. (All donations are tax deductible.)
I hope you will join me in supporting thousands of New York City students.
