Second virtual 5K to benefit Blue Band Legacy Fund

The Alumni Blue Band Association (ABBA) will hold its second virtual 5K, Oct. 16–24, to benefit the Blue Band Legacy Fund, which helps to secure the long-term financial needs of the Blue Band. The 2020 virtual 5K raised more than $23,000.

The event, open to the public, takes place over the course of a week to allow participants to complete the 5K on their own schedule. The $35 donation ($30 for ABBA members) includes an event T-shirt and an invitation to an event-only Facebook group where participants can connect (or reconnect) with one another. For an additional $10, participants may also purchase a Blue Band mask. To make an additional donation to the Blue Band Legacy Fund, copy and paste into your browser, and type “V5K” in the comments.

Registration for the Virtual 5K is open through Sept. 11 on the Alumni Blue Band website. Event packets will be mailed in time to ensure receipt by Oct. 16. Participants are encouraged to share photos and videos on social media using #5kforthelegacy.
