Beats Per Minute Fundraiser
Hosted by Luke Hawthorn
By running the Toronto Half-Marathon I hope to raise $1,000 for MusiCounts. I was lucky enough to grow up in a home and school environment that made music accessible and promoted it as a means of learning and expressing yourself. This was something I took for granted into my adult life and it wasn’t until recently that I began cherishing the opportunity I had growing up immersed in music. From playing the piano to attending my first music festival, these are experiences that many children do not get to enjoy at all. The positive impact that these experiences continue to have on me today are a key driver of why I have chosen to raise money for MusiCounts, as I believe that all children should have access to music to aid their personal, social and educational development.
All proceeds raised will go towards the MusiCounts Band Aid Program.
