Hello & welcome to my fundraising page!
I am once again participating in Ball State University Dance Marathon (BSUDM)! BSUDM is a year-long fundraising and awareness effort that culminates in a 13.1-hour long event for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children. All proceeds will help fund the Magic Castle Cart, a cart rolled around Riley Hospital delivering toys, games, and stuffed animals to all of the kiddos, and the Palliative Care Team which provides support for patients and families dealing with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. This group focuses on the quality of life for their patients and families while providing a holistic care for the mind, body, and spirit of the patient.
This will be my third year as a member of Ball State University Dance Marathon, and it has been the most defining part of my college career. BSUDM has given me a new perspective on the world and my role in it. I have been able to see first hand the impact that love and empathy has on a kiddo or family at Riley Hospital. They are some of the strongest people I have ever met, and they continue to inspire me to advocate even more for what we do. I have also grown as a leader, more than I ever thought possible, through my experiences serving within this organization. BSUDM has given me so much, and now it's time to give back to kiddos like Katelyn (pictured above) who I had the honor of meeting just before she went on stage to perform her rendition of Jingle Bells at BSUDM 2019!
This year, I am the President of BSUDM 2020. With this new role, comes many new challenges that I am excited to take head on! I lead the Executive Board, which consists of 20 Directors and 4 Vice Presidents. They are the most passionate and dedicated group of change-makers I have yet to meet, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to lead them through this year.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my involvement with Ball State University Dance Marathon. If you would like more information, feel free to reach out to me personally! I hope you consider donating For The Kids!
