On November 6th, I will be running the 2011 ING New York City Marathon in order to raise money for Education Through Music (ETM). ETM forms long-term partnerships with New York City schools that serve disadvantaged children and lack school-wide music programs. I learned about ETM through my friend Lisa Rubinger. Her sister has worked for the organization.

I am very excited to participate for the first time in New York, but I need your help.

I have made a commitment to raise $2,500 for Education Through Music in order to be able to participate in the marathon. I am asking friends, family and colleagues to consider sponsoring me for this event. I would greatly appreciate your kind consideration by making a donation toward this goal. All donations are, of course, tax deductible.

ETM believes that every child deserves music as a part of their education. Did you know that many schools, especially those serving children in low-income communities, provide no music instruction or rely solely on short-term programs that do not serve every student? The partnerships ETM forms with NYC schools provide weekly, skills- and standards-based music instruction to every child in each school, and provide supporting services such as training, professional development, leadership guidance, assessment and capacity building to teaching artists, teachers, principals and parents.

I hope you will please join me in supporting this very important cause.

Thank you in advance for your generous donations!
