From all of us here at the William Burchett Foundation (WBF) and Music Appreciation Project (MAP) to all of you: Thank you for being part of the first annual 5k for $5k Music Run.
The race went off without a hitch and the weather could not be more perfect for a fun run in the sun. This year's race hosted over 300 racers all showing up to show support for the cause. Bear Creek Lake Park provided the perfect backdrop for this convivial event. Families and runners of all ages took to the trail to raise money to provide music education for at-risk youth.
Here is where can find your official 2017 race results.
The William Burchett Foundation and Music Appreciation Project both want to extend an enormous thank you to our sponsors to include: Stevenson Toyota West, Village Roaster, Spaceman Guitars, Evergreen Guitar Dojo, and Chris Stongle Designs. Your support of this race and fundraiser is a major part of what made it such a success. We would like to also shout out to all our vendors who made this day really special.
We are proud to announce that we met our goal of raising $5,000 to donate to the Music Appreciation Project!!
