Hello! This summer, I will be spending all my free time marching with the Boston Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps. For approximately 2 1⁄2 months, we will tour the country, starting on the West Coast in California, and working our way back East. During this time, we will travel over 12,000 miles and perform in more than 40 competitions.
The Boston Crusaders are the third-oldest drum & bugle corps in the nation and are a proud founding member of Drum Corps International (www.dci.org). For over 70 years, the Boston Crusaders have provided opportunities for marching members to experience an intensive program of music education and performance training. While they are fiercely competitive, placing in the top 12 in the world for the past 13 years, they are equally known for providing a unique and meaningful family environment for all it's members.
I march with the Boston Crusaders because they are my family. It is an organization unlike any other! The Crusaders not only make one better at spinning or playing music, but they also make better men and women. One learns LIFE skills--teamwork, responsibility, dedication to something bigger than oneself, and many other things. The Crusaders are unlike any organization I have ever been with, and I am so proud to be a member of the amazing Color Guard there.
Today I am reaching out to family, friends, and alumni asking for your support to continue my Boston Crusader experience. Please CLICK THE DONATE BUTTON and make a tax- deductible donation to the March-A-Thon.
The Boston Crusaders are registered with the United States Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3 Not-for- Profit Corporation.
