The now 15th annual Music In Motion 5K race was created by Sterling orchestra director and avid runner, Barb Lauff. Mrs. Lauff and the Sterling orchestras hold the belief that no child should be excluded from music education due to financial restraints.
As a member of the Starved Rock Road Runners, the Cornbelt Running Club, Rockford Road Runners, Rock River Striders, and President of the locally based Rock River Road Runners, Barb has gained experience as a volunteer and participant to create a 5K run in Sterling. Combining both music and running seemed a natural union; thus the orchestra’s fall fundraiser is created with the Music In Motion race.
All the proceeds from the race go toward the purchasing and maintaining of instruments by the Orchestra Parents Organization, and distributed to students on an as-need basis. Our goal is to have a library of instruments, supplies, and books to be available to any student in need.
