What is Run for Music?
Run For Music is a fundraising and advocacy project of Choir Alberta. Participants will take part in a 5 km run, a 5km walk, or a 10 km run. Unique in its design, while advocating for the importance of choral music, funds raised through Run For Music pledges are split between Alberta choirs and Choir Alberta.

How does it work?
All RFM participants will register as a part of their choir's team. The team then works along with other members of the choir to collect pledges both for individual team members and for the choir's team in general. In this way, entire choir can get involved in supporting their team, either through collecting pledges for the team, making a donation to one or more of the team members, or by being at the start and finish lines to cheer their team members on!

Pledges are split between the choir that raised them and Choir Alberta. The idea behind Run For Music from a fundraising perspective is that it raises money both for individual choirs as well as for Choir Alberta programs and services that support Alberta's choirs (like Choralfest, the Alberta Youth Choir, the choral library, workshops, etc.). With that in mind, here are some key bits of information:

Getting Involved

There are lots of ways to be a part of Run For Music!

Note that choirs/choral organizations for which funds are being raised through Run For Music must hold an active membership in Choir Alberta.

Collecting Pledges
Pledges may be collected online or with a paper pledge form.

Choir Alberta provides tools to help participants garner pledges, including a sample email signature and Facebook status updates

Prizes
Prizes will be awarded to the team that raises the most overall and to the team with the highest per person fundraising amount.

Music on the Run
What would a run/walk in support of choral music be without some music along the way? As participants make their way through the course they will be met by singers of all ages performing all sorts of music!

Disbursements
Choir Alberta will issue disbursement cheques within 60 days of the event. Teams may request an early disbursement, particularly if their choir is taking part in a special project or tour to which the funds are to be allocated.
