As depicted in the film, one of Sam's greatest passions was music, and he realized his lifelong dream of being in his school's marching band. Keep Moving Forward (http://keepmovingforwardmusic.com/) was commissioned by the Foxborough Music Association in Sam's memory. It is based on Sam's life philosophy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36m1o-tM05g), his enthusiasm, and the spirit of inclusion and solidarity his classmates showed him. "Keep Moving Forward" was part of Sam's philosophy for a happy life, and thanks to composer Mark Miller and other supporters, PRF is proud to provide the sheet music and full score for "Keep Moving Forward" at no cost to band directors.
