The UKC Music Miles banner reads "You're invited: Miles that bring music to medically fragile children". The banner includes a graphic of 6 children holding their ukuleles.

Running Miles for Music

Just like exercise is great for your health, making music can be a healthy habit for kids in need.  

What is Music Miles?

A virtual walk or run you can complete wherever you are. Run with your friends and family. Share your race on social media and get your team running miles that matter.

When does it happen?

Starts October 20th to October 30th, 2022
Complete at your own pace! Not a runner? Get motivated with us and join our Strava Team!

Why do you do it?

To raise funds for supporting our mission of transforming lives through music! We believe every kid going through hard times needs music to cope and heal. While we work mostly with hospitalized children, there are so many kids in crisis around the world. We want to support as many children and teens as we can. Your support helps us get there!
