EVENT: 2013 UCR Dance Marathon
EVENT DATE: Feb 23, 2013
Thank you for visiting my page. Let me give you a little history about why this event means so much to me. As a former foster youth and Guardian Scholar, myself, I am touched by the efforts of the Guardian Scholars Program at UCR. They provide a family-like environment that offers academic, and financial assistance to those who identify as former foster youth. During the holiday season we all go home and enjoy the time with family and friends...unfortunately many of these kids do not have a family to go home to. So GS offers year-round housing for them, and also provides them with holiday activities. All of the proceeds go to GS and helps them fund the programs they offer. Please find it in your heart to donate. Any amount is extremely helpful.
Let me know if you have any questions!
