Join us for the first ever Fostoria Band on the Run 5k! This event will benefit the Fostoria Redmen Band program in the Fostoria City Schools. Come support instrumental music education and burn a few calories with us!
School band programs come with several annual expenses, including instrument repair/maintenance, sheet music, uniform upkeep/replacement, equipment needs like music stands, and more. We also come across wonderful performance opportunities for the students that need financial support in order to happen. The Redmen Music Club is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to helping support the music department in the Fostoria City Schools, and the host of this event.
Named "America's Original High School Band", the Fostoria Redmen Band program has a rich and noteworthy history, claiming to be one of the very first registered band classes within the high school schedule. Founded in 1919 by Jack Wainwright, the program has had continued statewide and national recognition of excellence for 100 years.
