BENEFITING: Education Through Music
ORGANIZER: Education Through Music
On November 6th, I'm running the NYC Marathon to help raise money for Education Through Music. ETM is instrumental in providing musical education for inner-city elementary and middle schools in New York City. I was fortunate to grow up with the opportunity to have music in my life with both piano and violin - and had the great experience of playing in a symphony orchestra through high school. I truly believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be exposed to music at a young age. ETM has a great impact in New York City, and is currently working with over 13,000 underprivileged students in the area. This will be my first marathon (or really my first race!), so bear with me if I limp into the finish line, but I appreciate any and all support! Thanks!
Fundraising Goal: $1,500 (by November 3rd)
ETM forms long-term partnerships with inner-city elementary schools that lack the resources to develop school-wide music programs. We ensure high-quality instruction by hiring qualified teaching artists, providing ongoing training, and performing regular program assessments. We encourage academic teachers and teaching artists to collaborate so that music can reinforce learning and development in all areas. And we help schools embrace music as a core subject by involving all members of the school community.
