5K race to help Tarpon High band get to Macy's Parade

Tarpon Springs, Florida -- In just a few months, the Tarpon Springs High School Marching Band will be performing before a national audience at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

The route is a little over 2.6 miles. You can help them get to the parade by running five kilometers.

On Saturday at 8:30 a.m., the school is hosting a fundraiser for the marching band, called "Band on the Run." It's a 5K race and a one-mile family fun run. The cost is just $35 for the 5K and $20 for the one-mile run if you register before April 25.

After the 25th, registration increases by $5. All money will go to get the band to the Thanksgiving Day parade.

Members of the band and guard will be along the race route cheering on runners, playing music, spinning flags and flashing their appreciative smiles.
