CavMusic 5K set for Dec. 3

On Dec. 3, come to Linganore Winery & Vineyard and help support the South Carroll Instrumental Music Boosters and at the same time, run and taste amazing wines.

John Foran, the coordinator of this event, stated in an email interview that this is the first time the South Carroll Instrumental Music Boosters has hosted this event.

Foran decided to host this event to raise funds for the South Carroll Instrumental Boosters after seeing a soccer team do the same 5K fundraising event last year at the Linganore Winecellars.


According to Foran, all of the proceeds will benefit the South Carroll High School Instrumental Music Program.

He also stated that the funds will be used to purchase music, instruments, instrument repair and other costs not covered by the school.

"The primary aim of our program is to provide opportunities for each student to experience a rigorous musical education within a community of learners who value excellence, discipline, and commitment to continual improvement. Our program also aims to develop positive habits that will prove invaluable later in life, such as concentration, teamwork, memory skills, and self-discipline," stated Foran.

Throughout this event, there will be live music played by the South Carroll High School's band and orchestra. The runners will be enjoying the beautiful field and the amazing nature around the Linganore Winery.

"The experience of the music program at South Carroll allows students to lean a skill and gain friendships that will last a lifetime," stated Foran. "We appreciate Linganore Winecellars for providing the venue and hope many come out to enjoy the Winery after taking a 5K stroll through the property."

The participants can pick the group they would like to be part of. There are the "5K runners," "Fun runners," and the "Virtual runners."

The "5K runners" will receive a T-shirt, wine glass, two free tastings and awards. The "Fun runners" will receive a T-shirt and two free tastings.

The "Virtual runners" are those who can not make it to the event and would like to make their donation online.

The cost to be a 5K and Virtual Runner is $35 and $10 for the Fun Runner.

Only people over 21 years old are welcome to the event. The race starts at 9 a.m. and the check-in begins at 7:30 a.m.
