Dear Friends and Family,
The Woodbury HS Marching Band will be one of the first two High School Bands to perform in the brand new US Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday, October 15th. Students will join forces with the Lakeville South HS Band to play pep band tunes at the American Cancer Society “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk”. We will also put together a team from the Woodbury High School Band to walk at the event.
If you would like to contribute to the American Cancer Society’s cause, the donation site for our WHS Band Team is now open and live http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR…. The website accepts credit card donations and paypal. Checks and cash can be mailed directly to the ACS office: ACS, attn: Making Strides Twin Cities, 950 Blue Gentian Rd Suite 100, Eagan, MN 55121. Please make sure to list that the donations are for the Woodbury HS Band Team on your check!
Finally, we are launching a social media campaign to raise awareness for our band’s fundraising efforts. Please tag our band and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk site on InstaGram or Twitter using @woodburyband and @MSABCtwincities, and use the hash tags#RealMenWearPink #RMWPMN #MakingStridesTC #MakingStrides to spread the word to friends, family, coworkers, etc…about raising awareness and possibly donating.
I have lost a grandfather, a young aunt, and a far too young cousin to cancer in the last decade. I also know of way too many friends, classmates, and coworkers whose lives are impacted every day by a battle with cancer. It is time to make strides to end this disease’s devastating effects on our lives. Please join the band and I in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer!
