Best of the Bronx: Campaign launched at Lavelle School for the Blind to save Beat Rockers music program

A program that allows students with disabilities to tap into their musical talents is on the chopping block.



A new campaign has been launched to raise funds for the musical program at the Lavelle School for the Blind.



The goal is to raise $20,000 to keep the Beat Rockers program going for the next two years.



Beat Rockers is a beatboxing program that teaches blind students with additional disabilities that they don't need sight to see the beauty in music.
