We are holding our very first 5k ever as a fundraiser for the Grove City Marching Band this year for we have been chosen to perform in the 2017 Rose Bowl Parade. This is quite an honor. We also have the honor to hold our 5k at Scioto Grove Metro Park in Grove City, OH a brand new Metro Park that has just opened on May 6, 2016! We are the 1st to hold an event like this here! It is a beautiful brand new park!
Our band is the only one in Ohio that has been chosen! We are quite excited, But is it a very expensive trip to get all 250-300 kids, including directors, chaperones, all of the instruments, props, color guard equipment, uniforms and all the little things in between. Our goal is to get every kid out to California, not everyone may be able to afford it. We are hoping that our efforts here can help those that cannot afford it help them get to go anyways. We do not want to leave any child behind here in Ohio. They work as a team together all year and to leave someone behind would just be devastating for that child and their peers. This is a once in a life time opportunity for most of the kids in the band and we want all of them to experience it together.
