For 10 consecutive years, donations from the Spring Lake 5 running community have enabled Asbury Park Music Foundation to offer incredible music scholarships for its “Music Saved My Life” program at Lakehouse Music Academy in Asbury Park. These scholarships open doors for under-resourced youth and teens who are growing up in poverty in Asbury Park, by providing an outstanding music education at no cost to their families.
“Music Saved My Life” deeply affects young lives. Students learn to express themselves through music and develop the skills necessary to get into college or pursue a career in music. The program helps to improve grades, self-esteem and social skills among young people with limited means but unlimited potential. Asbury Park Music Foundation is excited to honor the Spring Lake 5 running community for its many contributions to students and music in Asbury Park. We’d like to invite each of you to our inaugural “Where Music Lives Awards Show” on May 17, 2024, where the Spring Lake 5 will be honored.
