THE STORY:

I will be running the NYC Marathon for a charity called "Education Through Music" and for the memory of my friend and former grade school music teacher, Eric Steinman. I've always taken issue with this country's educators' choice to put music and arts programs at the top of their cut lists when funding issues arise and now it's my turn to push back, if only a little bit.

Education Through Music was founded to promote the integration of music into the curricula of disadvantaged schools in order to enhance students' academic performance and general development. Unfortunately, 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. ETM has created a comprehensive program that incorporates music into the education of every child, including those with special needs.

Although the funds will be used at ETM's discretion, ETM has agreed to accept the sum of my donations in the memory of Eric Steinman, whose love of music and the arts brought perspective and color to my life where it never existed before. Eric was a special man who unexpectedly passed away in late 2011. He devoted his life to exposing people to music, including myself, and I will hold his memory close to my heart for the rest of my life. It is only fitting for me to promote his memory in the best way I can....to do my small part in bringing music to children who would otherwise not be exposed to its beauty, power and positive effects.
