Dance Marathon #FTK...Dance It Out!

(Photo taken from social media on The Exec Boards Visit)

You know as a mom and an educator, I am very proud of my daughter for getting involved in this event. I do believe lots of life lessons to be learned in participating in fundraisers like this.  I am blogging this on behalf of my daughter. I just proofed her college app essay and this is her last paragraph.


"I know finding a cure for cancer is a lofty goal and may be one that is unobtainable but as my grandparents always said “quitters never prosper” and I am ready to try.  I know that my grandparent’s legacy will be guiding me, and the life lessons they taught me will propel me to new horizons.  Finding answers to problems is a long and winding path, but it will be worth it if it makes a change in the lives of others.

Hey Everyone!!! On February 4th, I am participating in Dance Marathon at Maclay School. I was wondering if you guys would like to help me reach my goal of $1,000. This year is my first year being a part of Dance Marathon Executive Board, so I would like to kick off with a great start! All proceeds go straight to my local Children's Miracle Network hospital, Shands! It would mean the world to me if you supported me and my participation in this amazing cause that saves kids' lives everyday! Here is my personal fundraising account:
