It's a beautiful spring day. You meet your friends for a short, 1.5-mile walk around one of Boston's loveliest parks, the Back Bay Fens. You are surrounded by musicians and dancers, artists and actors, children and seniors. There is music in the air and happiness in your heart because you know that your are making a difference. You are helping to keep the arts alive in your community!

Why join the Walk for Music and the Arts

1. You can support ANY arts program you choose - a school arts program, community organization, professional ensemble - anything that is important to you.
Each arts program keeps 100% of its pledges, so everything you raise supports your organization.
3. There is NO cost to your organization, a very LOW ($5) registration fee per family, and NO pledge commitments.
4. You don't have to plan a fundraising event, and neither does your organization.

Raising money for the arts has never been easier. In recent years, the Walk for Music and the Arts has raised almost $2,000,000 for over 100 arts programs throughout Greater Boston. So what are you waiting for? Join the Walk and raise money for the programs YOU care about.
