Friends, family, acquaintances, neighbors, colleagues, peers, teachers, I’m here to talk to you about an amazing organization I’m proud to be a part of at the big University of Iowa: Dance Marathon! I know what that sounds like, “Why is she talking to us about this dance club, and why is she proud?” Actually, Dance Marathon is an amazing organization that raises money for the University of Iowa’s Children's Hospital! Dance Marathon is in partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network to donate money that goes towards supporting child oncology patients being treated here-- in the very town at which I go to college. Throughout this year, I’m going to be attending a great many functions where I’ll be able to meet some of the brave and courageous kids and families fighting this battle against cancer, and I’m so grateful to be given the opportunity to make a difference. But, I need your help! Every year, Dance Marathon hosts a huge event to raise money for and to honor the children fighting & surviving in the University hospital and also to remember & commemorate those who have passed on. The event is a super exciting 24 hour dance party, and I’ll get to dance alongside some amazing kids. But to be able to participate in the BIG Event, I need to raise $500 for the Dance Marathon cause. I know that there are so many great charities and foundations out there, but it would just mean so much to me if you guys would help me and all the little warriors get to the BIG Event this February. Even if you only have a penny to give, that’s a penny closer to $500 and a penny more for an excellent cause.
For the kids always,
