The AJ Howard Memorial Fund was established in May of 2016. AJ was tragically taken from his family in an auto accident. In lieu of flowers at his memorial service, AJ’s mother asked that any money be donated to the M100 to help pay the band fees for those students who would benefit from the support of available funds. These donations covered the cost of equipment, uniforms, instruments & private lesson fees for many M100 band members, making it possible for all M100 members to have what they need to not only participate, but also excel in band. 

The Belton Band Boosters continue to support M100 students through the memory and spirit of AJ Howard and his family by hosting a Memorial Fund 5K. It is an annual celebratory event and primary fundraiser. All funds raised through the 5K are solely used to provide still: equipment, uniforms, instrument & private lesson fees for students who otherwise would not be able to participate in band. AJ was well loved by his fellow band members, had a servant’s heart, and will not be forgotten. Through the AJ Memorial Fund, his spirit of generosity lives on and he will continue to impact the lives of fellow M100 members for many years to come.

The in-person 5K is part of the Cen-Tex Race Series. All participants will earn Cen-Tex Race Series points. Awards to the top overall male and female finishers, and the top three male and female finishers per age group. Age groups: 11&U, 12-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34 etc. to 70+.
