​For the 5th year in a row, Music In Motion and Everloft Studios proudly present the Music In Motion Marathon!

Over the past 4 years, you all have shown your enormous generosity towards our event, in all the various forms it took. Thanks to all of our generous donors these last few years, we have raised over $25,000 for Music In Motion.

*Where has that money gone?*
Thanks to your continued generosity, the Music In Motion program has not only been able to continue running, but it has greatly expanded and is stronger than ever! We'll be taking some opportunities this year during the stream to highlight the progress that has been made with some videos taken by Alyssa Jerdon Brett, director of Music In Motion.

Music In Motion is now running in 2 locations in Guatemala - Gualan and Pueblo Modelo. Music In Motion is currently offering lessons to over 50 students - the most at one time since we returned after a mandatory pause due to the pandemic. Music In Motion has also provided full-time and part-time positions to be filled by local music instructors.

The number of children and young adults in the community that now have an opportunity to grow, learn and play together through music increases every single year.
*What is the format this year?*
This year will feature a mixture of pre-recorded & live performances from a wide array of musical artists, a curated selection of videos of Ian Jerdon, and videos directly from Guatemala with performances by the participants of Music in Motion themselves!
During the event, we'll have multiple raffles available, just like we did during the last event this past January.
WHEN:
January 14, 2023 6:00AM ET
January 15, 2023 12:00AM ET
If there's anything, in particular, you'd like to see during the event, or if you have any questions, please let us know. Spread the word and clear your calendar - we promise this will be the best marathon yet!
