BENEFITING: Education Through Music
ORGANIZER: Education Through Music
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Dear Family & Friends,
On November 3rd, I will be running the 2013 New York City Marathon in order to raise money for Education Through Music (ETM). ETM is a wonderful charity that forms long-term partnerships with New York City schools that lack school-wide music programs. ETM believes that every child deserves music as a part of their education, not only for the sake of learning music or how to play an instrument, but because children learn better when music is a part of their school routine. The partnerships ETM forms with NYC schools provide music instruction as a core subject to every child in each school, and provides supporting services such as training, professional development, and leadership guidance to teachers, principals, and parents.
I am very excited to support this great cause, 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 family and friends to consider sponsoring me for this event. (All donations are tax deductible.)
I know that music has played a big part in many of your lives and hope that you will join me in supporting this very important cause - to give the love of music to future generations of children.
All the best,
