Do you guys know what is happening this weekend?
Dance Marathon is the largest student run organization on ISU’s campus. They raise money throughout the year for Children’s Miracle Network and specifically University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. They have pledged one million dollars to the new children’s hospital scheduled to be completed in 2016!
This is our second year participating in Dance Marathon. We had an absolute blast last year!! We made a new video to share Reese’s story and our love for Dance Marathon.
Over the past year the people of this organization have become near and dear to us. These college students spend their time, talents, and many hours raising money for children who spend time at the U of I. They give selflessly. They plan fun events for the kids and families throughout the year. They spend hours preparing for a day long event that is designed to celebrate life. Reese looks forward to the “day-of” all year. Dancing, music, games, 900 college students to play with, a 15 hour non-stop party…what’s not to love?
If you (like us) are feeling the love, you can make a general donation here. But, I want to introduce you to a couple students who have made an impact in Reese’s life. These folks are special. Please consider specifically supporting them. In the end, all the money goes into the same pot, so maybe you should support them all 🙂
Terry is our families contact this year. Meaning, he is in charge of getting us info and keeping us in line 🙂 We love Terry. We have been able to share life with him and the kids get so excited when he comes over. He supported Reese at her dance recital, visited her in the hospital- twice, sent his fiance to visit when he couldn’t be there, watches sports with Brian, joins us for dinner, he is just great. As a matter of fact, he is watching our kids tomorrow night so we can go to connection group. We are blessed by his support of our family.
