We are running to raise awareness and money for the Katharine W. Hoffman Chicago Chapter of Little Kids Rock (LKR), a national nonprofit that believes music has the power to transform children's lives. That's why we are dedicated to restoring and revitalizing music education in U.S. public schools, ensuring that all kids have the right to rock! We do this by providing free musical instruments and music instruction to disadvantaged schools across the country. LKR uses an innovative style of music education that focuses on teaching kids to perform, improvise and compose popular music that kids know and love.
Music and teaching were two of my mom's passions in life and LKR embodies her aspiration in a fun and creative way, while empowering kids in multiple facets of life. Please join me in running for a great cause and great kids in the Chicagoland area.
