EVENT: UCR Dance Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Feb 20, 2016
I am supporting UCR's 5th annual Dance Marathon (DM2016), as we once again partner with CrowdRise and reach out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and money for the Guardian Scholars Program to help emancipated foster youth at UCR. This program assists in the every day lives of former youth at UCR. As a graduate of the program, myself, I can attest to the many ways this program has helped not only my undergrad experience, but also supported me in my choice to work, and then go to grad school. More specifically, and perhaps most important, they became my family. The prorgam provides scholarships, sustenance, support, and family for all of the students in the program.
