BENEFITING: Music Health Alliance
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2017
Despite often working multiple jobs to support careers in the arts, over 3/4 of professional musicians don't have access to group health insurance. Already the #1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S., medical expenses can absolutely cripple those in the creative sector in their most vulnerable and urgent times of need.
The Music Health Alliance ("MHA") is tackling the issue of health insurance at its core. Through its mission to Heal the Music, the MHA provides access to healthcare through services that PROTECT, DIRECT & CONNECT music industry professionals with medical and financial solutions.
You can join RootNote in its goal of raising awareness and funds for the MHA in several ways:
1). Donate money to the campaign (contributions of all sizes are welcome ($10 min) and appreciated!)
2). Join me on a training run, ride, or swim and spread the word about MHA! For the next 24 weeks, building up to race day on September 23rd, I'll be posting opportunities for you to come out and get active.
3). Stay up to date by following us on twitter! Look for hashtags #HealTheMusic, #IronmanItaly, and #RootNote4MHA
