Munster Band Backers
Munster Band Backers 

The 1st Annual 2016 Moonlit March that will be held on Sunday, October 23rd is a unique glow run/walk that celebrates fitness, family fun, community spirit and the accomplishments of the MHS Marching Band.  Participants will run or walk a 5K around the high school track and through Community Park while the Marching Band serenades and volunteers pass out glow-in-the-dark merchandise.

The Moonlit March is an opportunity for the Marching Band to raise vital funds that will help offset the cost of new instruments and show design and props.  We are currently seeking sponsors to cover the cost of organizing the race in order to make the biggest impact in dollars raised through registrations.  To make a tax deductible donation, or for more information about becoming a sponsor through various donation levels, please email for a Sponsor Letter and Registration Form.  To register for the race, please go to  Pre-registration ends October 10th so don’t wait – register now to be guaranteed a race t-shirt!
