Walk-A-Thon 2021

On the weekend of November 12-14, 2021, children and families will be walking together in spirit in support of the Prelude Music Foundation.  Your children’s participation in this Walk-a-Thon will directly impact the lives of children in some of the most under-served parts of Houston.  Thank you for supporting the Prelude Music Foundation and for teaching your child(ren) about kindness, generosity, and service.  

On Walk-a-Thon weekend -- whenever it is most convenient for your family -- children will walk in support of bringing music education classes to children from in-need communities of Houston.  This is designed to be a flexible, low-key, active service opportunity for your family. You set the walking goal that works best for you and your children. Some suggestions are:

 

The Prelude Music Foundation serves high-poverty, low-literacy communities where families often lack the tools to help support their children's cognitive and academic development. Utilizing the research-based music and movement curriculum Music Together®, the PMF supports the cognitive, academic, and musical development of children during the most formative years of their lives.

This academic year (2021-2022) alone, the Foundation is bringing playful, research-based music education classes to approximately 4,000 children in 303 classrooms.  Due to the pandemic, we are unable to safely host our usual fall and winter in-person fundraisers.  The remote Walk-A-Thon is a safe way for us to raise critical funds and it is a lovely opportunity to teach children about service.  We are excited for this opportunity and hope you'll sign up to walk and/or donate!
