Reminder–PTA 5K early registration deadline 9/27

Reminder:  Early registration deadline for PTA 5K is next Sunday (9/27)!  This is a fun event and a great way to support the band and have fun with friends!  Paper registration forms are available in the band room.

I want to share with our HC Band Supporters an easy and fun way to make money for our band!  The PTA 5K is held every year at Coldstream–for the second year, in an effort to get more interest from the high schools, they are offering to share the profits with booster groups that sign up with them!  Henry Clay Band is part of this agreement, and the PTA will give us $10 per registration!  The neat thing about this is that the cost to participate is only $10 for each student and $20 for adults (through Sunday, September 27th).  The price goes up $5 per registration after that. If you don’t want to run (or walk) the 5K, you can choose to do the 1 mile fun run/walk instead for the same price. The date of the event is Sunday, October 18th.  The 1 mile races start around 1:30, and the 5K starts at 2:30.  We do not have a marching band contest that weekend, so marchers won’t have a late night the day before.

I’ve attached the instructions to sign up online (please follow them closely to make sure HC Band gets the $10 donation per registration).  There is a processing fee per order if you do this option.  If you prefer,  you can print out and mail if you want to avoid the processing fee and just use a stamp. Here is the link:

Please let me know if you have any questions.  All proceeds raised from participants in this race will go toward the Disney trip.  I would love to see 100+ people out there supporting our band and having fun!
