Marching Band does an awesome job at the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon

The Marching Band met at 3:45am on Sunday, August 31st and loaded up the busses for the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon in Anaheim.  The group did an awesome job playing pep tunes and cheering for all of the racers.  The Disney representative had great things to say about our group's performance and spirit !  Special thanks to the alumni who came out and played with us, along with the parents who chaperoned, passed out water, hauled gear and cheered as well!  Great job everyone - Mickey would be proud !
