Run for Music is a fun and easy way to help Alberta choirs raise funds for themselves, and to support the programs
offered by Choir Alberta. Designed to provide a much higher percentage of return than most fundraisers, 50 to 75 percent
of the funds raised go directly to your choir. Funds remaining after Run For Music expenses are paid are used
in support of Choir Alberta initiatives such as the Alberta Children's Choirs, Alberta Youth Choir, Choralfest, and Music
Conference Alberta. These programs provide learning and performance opportunities for more than 12,000 choristers from
more than 200 choirs across Alberta every year.
Members of each Run For Music team walk or run 5 or 10 km through Edmonton's scenic Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park.
As participants make their way through the course, they are met by musicians of all ages performing all kinds of music!
After crossing the finish line, participants sit down to a delicious pancake breakfast complete with live entertainment
for participants and their supporters to enjoy.
While choirs build teams of up to 25 people who will walk or run the course, the whole choir is involved in gathering
support for the fundraiser. Teams can include anyone - choristers, family members, or friends. As long as they share the
common goal of raising money for your choir (and enjoying themselves while doing it), they're welcome to join. Pledges
are made to the team (not the individual). Your whole choir is encouraged to collect pledges for your choir's team
either online at RaiseAThon.ca (this site) or with paper pledge forms downloadable from
Registration fees per team are based on the number of participants on your team. Teams up to 10 - $250, Teams 11-15 - $300, Teams 16-20 - $350, Teams 21-25 - $400. This will be deducted from your final fundraising amount and is not due upon registration.
