Enjoy a beautiful morning at Hugh MacRae park, with azaleas blooming and music from our talented band students, including our award winning marching band brass, woodwinds, percussion and color guard.

About the Cause

The goal of our race is to promote awareness of the importance of music education in all schools and to support the band programs at John T. Hoggard High School. The Hoggard band programs include marching band and color guard, concert and symphonic bands, and the jazz band.

Proceeds for the race go to the Hoggard Band Booster Club, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support and promote the musical endeavors of the JT Hoggard High School band programs. All donations and money received from the race will directly benefit the band programs.
