Teachers Info – PA Event

Hello Teachers, Coaches and other School Group Leaders!

We would like to invite your school to participate in the 2015 Miles for Music 1 Miler & 5K – Saturday, October 31, 2015 in Tyler State Park in Newtown, PA. The Miles for Music 1 Miler & 5K is a great way to get kids excited about physical education, music education, community involvement, and reward them for their accomplishments.

As a school leader, you decide how active a role you want to take in the event. You can simply register your school and let each child register for the team with their parent’s help – via our secure online registration site. Or, you can take the lead for the school’s team, promote the event in your school, and register all the kids together via paper applications (downloadable below, or available from our office).

You’ll need at least 10 students, parents, or teachers on a team to qualify for funding, but all 10 team members do not have to register at the same time. Students, parents, and teachers can continue to join your school’s team via mail-in registration or our online registration site – subject to the following dates.


Schools must be registered by: Monday, October 19th, 2015

Mail-in registrations must be postmarked by: Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Online registration must be completed by: Thursday, October 29th, 2015


If you would like printed entry forms and flyers for promotion of the event at your school, please contact the Miles for Music office, and we would be happy to send you as many as you need.
