Band on the Run 2k, 5k, and 7k Race

Band Families-

Each year, SMHS band boosters holds a spring fundraiser.  In the past, we have held an event called Spring Sampler. While this has been an enjoyable event, it has not yielded us much money to support our band programs at Starr’s Mill. Our efforts support ALL of the band programs at Starr’s Mill.

This year we are hosting our first ever 2K, 5K, and 7K race.  The date of this race is set for Friday, April 26th.  Our goal is to raise $15,000 to replace some instruments and purchase more instruments for our band program next year. Many of our instruments are 20+ years old. The county nor the school provides money for replacing and purchasing new instruments.  It’s up to us to help our children get what they need so they can continue to grow musically!

We need EVERYONE’S help!  In order for this race to be a successful fundraiser, we need SPONSORS.  Sponsorship amounts are $50, $250, $500, and $1,000.  We are asking EACH band family to acquire two $250 or more sponsors.  Letters for sponsorship will be coming home with students next week.  We encourage you to ask anyone and everyone – doctors, dentists, businesses, etc.  Along with sponsors, we also need DOOR PRIZES.  This can be anything – gift cards, free haircuts, dog grooming, jewelry, etc. 

We really need everyone’s support in making this a success for our students.  More information about sponsorship will come home with your child next week. 

Thanks so much for helping us!  This is a great opportunity to get our community involved while helping our children.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at
