For the second year, I will be participating in Indiana University's Dance Marathon! Last year, I danced for my sorority as a 36 hour dancer and I was overjoyed by the compassion everyone involved in the marathon showed. This year I am beyond excited to be apart of the MORALE commitee! Our job is to keep everyone's spirits high, teach the AMAZING linedance and make sure the marathon stays energetic, loving and CRAZY!
IUDM is 36 hours of absolute fun and love. All the proceeds go to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, IN. Last year at IUDM, we raised $4.2 MILLION for the kids of Riley. I know that this year we will beat that record and make a difference once again.
My goal this year is to raise a wooping $20,000!! I know this number seems ridiculous, but its MORALE'S ridiculousness that makes me believe I can do it. I am inspried everyday by the amazing people I have met through IUDM, and with the support of all of you I know I can reach my goal!
IUDM has given me a safe space to be myself. I want to give the kids at Riley a chance to do that as well. When they come to the marathon, there is NOTHING in the world as touching as seeing them smile. That is why I dance. I dance for those who can't. I dance to bring a SMILE to their face. I dance to help them FIGHT for life everyday. I dance FOR THE KIDS!

Much love and FTK forever,
