I am a Sophmore in high school trying to pursue my dream of traveling and performing for thousands of people. This opportunity has become available to me through drum corps. Drum corps is similar to marching band, but I will have the opportunity to travel all over the United States. It teaches discipline, time management, organizational and social skills, as well as how to become better at something that I love. I have struggled to maintain a healthy weight for the past four years. This would give me the opportunity to get in better shape as well as improve my overall health. My high school chorus/band teacher will be on staff with the drum corps and has offered this opportunity to me. It's terribly expensive and I cannot do this alone. Your donations would help pay for my tuition, which covers charter buses, food for the summer, and housing for rehearsal days. Anything you can do to help me would be greatly appreciated!
