Race for the Auto Music! 5K in June

Wanted to give a shout out to the race in June (given my poor showing in producing race calendars recently):

Automotive HS in Greenpoint is hosting a 5K run/walk on Saturday, June 12 at 9, with all proceeds going to support the school's music program. Details are here.

Worth a look, especially given the state budget crunch: A lot of schools are having to make some unfortunate choices, and music programs are certainly one of the things on the chopping block.

From the Web site:

"Auto Music has grown to include more students than any other club or sports team at the high school. Students and music ensembles have performed at countless community events, the Village Halloween Parade, Auto Varsity Football games, Wellesley College's annual Hip Hop Dance Convention, have been accepted to citywide honors music programs, acting programs at the Stella Adler School, and regularly audition for and have been chosen for paid acting parts in numerous films."

I really thought "auto music" meant that someone would drive next to me when I ran and play my favorite song.
