Some awesome students at Croton Harmon High School did an outstanding job of capturing both the spirit and the excitement of the 2018 event, and as soon as they have completed the video, we’ll share it! In the meantime, check out the video they captured and created from our 2017 event, set to Harry Chapin’s classic “Remember When the Music”!
“When in doubt…do something!”
Harry Chapin had a goal: he wanted to end world hunger during his lifetime. So he did something about it. He raised and donated millions of dollars by performing “one night for me, and one night for the other guy” throughout his career. He co-founded World Hunger Year (now WhyHunger), and Long Island Cares (now The Harry Chapin Food Bank). He lobbied Congress and President Carter to get involved. And he encouraged his fans to make a difference.
Countdown to Race Day
Harry’s music and his humanitarian work are forever linked together. Here’s the “Chapin anthem” that he sang at the end his concerts.
