THE STORY:

Flea wrote -

Calling Team Silverlake!

I couldn't be more proud to run in the 2011 Honda LA Marathon for Silverlake and with a team of amazing runners.

We've grown so much in the past 10 years. What started out as an effort to bring music programs into schools has grown into a music school in itself offering scholarships to children in the area.

Currently we have over 250 low-income (Title 1) students on scholarship, where they receive free music lessons and an instrument. It costs the Conservatory about $2,000 a year per student, or approximately $175 a month to provide these free music lessons.

The mission of the Conservatory is to facilitate basic music education for the youth of the community (ages 7-17) but all are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Kids need a place to go after school and during weekends where there is a positive influence and music is something that you can just throw yourself into.

Music saved my life and brought me great joy.

Please click DONATE now to support these programs and if you're running with me or want to run for our cause or even want to just help us fundraise...click JOIN THE TEAM.

Once you join the team, you'll become a team member for this fundraiser and can share your own page with your friends and family asking them to support this cause.

Our goal is for each runner to raise $1,000.

Runners or individuals who raise at least $1,000 will receive:

- A meet and greet with the team and Flea
- A Silverlake T-shirt
- Conservatory Inspiration spot at mile 7.5 with live music and runner support.
- Tickets to an upcoming Silverlake Conservatory musical event (Must be the first 25 to raise $1,000)

I know we can do this. Start today. Let's make a difference in these kids' lives.

Thank you!
Flea
