Help us celebrate 15 years with our OCTOBER MOVE-A-THON! 15 YEARS! That's how old Music In Common turns next month and that's something worth shouting about. We've created some amazing events to commemorate this milestone. Here's one we absolutely hope you'll join in on.
Our 15th Anniversary Move-a-Thon kicks off October 1st and runs all month. What's a Move-a-thon, you ask? A Move-a-Thon is like a walkathon, but better because in a Move-a-Thon you can do ANYTHING! As long as your body is moving and you have some way of tracking it, anything goes. You can walk, run, hike, bike, golf, row, paddle, dance, or anything else you can think of. Even things like housework or yard work -- if you can measure it by the mile or by the hour, it counts. And, you do it at your own schedule right where you live.
The Move-a-Thon aims to raise $15K in honor of our 15th Anniversary. It's easy to join in:
Register to participate in the Move-a-Thon as an individual or a team
Set a monthly goal for yourself if you'd like. Or not.
Promote your participation to friends, family, co-workers, etc. and ask them to sponsor you by the mile or hour. Or maybe they'd like to register to participate themselves.
That's all there is to it. Easy, right? You'll be able to track your progress with updates posted along the way. And we've got some fun swag for you when you register as well as some very cool individual and team prizes for top fundraisers. You can feel good - not only physically from all the moving you'll be doing - but also from knowing that you are helping carry Music In Common into the next 15 years of doing the important work that needs doing. 100% of the profits raised from our October Move-a-Thon will directly support Music In Common programs including:
Our recently hatched Fellowship Cohort - a leadership program for Music In Common alum ages 22-25
Ongoing programs such as JAMMS, Amplify, and FODfest, which have been forced online because of COVID.
We've come a long way in 15 years and the world has certainly changed since our humble beginnings. So, let's all rally up for a really great cause and a really fun time to meet the challenges of the day and to take us boldly into the future. REGISTER NOWand let's get moving!
New single, Under the Sun, from Amplify '19 out now! We're super pleased to share the new single, Under the Sun, from our Amplify '19 EP created and edited by Amplify '19 band member Darby Taylor.. Under the Sun, like much of the EP, is a song for the times. Check it out and share with friends and family.
Like all small businesses who serve people face to face in a physical space, Music In Common is feeling the economic impact of Coronavirus in very real and direct ways. A donation today, particularly a monthly recurring one, will help offset the financial challenges and loss of funding from the pandemic.
I learned that I can truly stretch my musical and collaborative capabilities to a great level when I am motivated and in a great environment to do so. Amplify allowed me to develop my skills on bass, performing, collaborating, and respecting people of different backgrounds.
