5K walk. Morningside Heights.

Walked in solidarity with Kirk in the Hills to support Accent Pontiac. Accent Pontiac’s mission is “strengthening Pontiac’s youth and community through equitable access to intensive and consistent music making.” My father’s first jobs were as a high school instrumental teacher and band director. The last half of the play list honors him.

It was great to get some exercise, support a friend, support a great cause, and remember my father.
