THE STORY:

Dance Marathon at UCR started as the brain-child of a student in the Student Alumni Association (housed in the office I work in). A colleague of mine mentioned it to me and I recalled one of my students from Golden Key (the honor society I co-advise) mentioning this idea a while back. Dance Marathons are large philanthropic events that are a huge part of student life for schools on the east coast (Penn State, Rutgers, etc.). They have started to make their way over to California, and the two student groups mentioned above decided to be the ones to start the revolution at UCR. In order to keep it "all in the family" (the UCR family that is), the students decided to hold this event to benefit the Guardian Scholars program at UCR. This program helps emancipated foster youth attend college through financial, emotional, and social support (to put it briefly).

As an advisor and dancer, this project sparked my interest, and we have been very busy getting things ready for the big day, which is February 25, 2012! The students have been hard at work, but we still need help raising funds to donate. The concept of philanthropy is a new one at UCR, and the other advisors and I know we need to lead by example. With all that said, I would greatly appreciate any support you can offer. If even half of the people I know donated $1, I would easily reach my goal. So, you can donate online or contact me personally to find out other ways to donate/help (vanessa.bryan@ucr.edu). And as always, let me know if you have any questions.

Lots of Love,

V

 

P.S. -  A Note from GK:

Golden Key is raising money for UCR's first ever Dance Marathon. All the proceeds will go to Guardian Scholars Program, which provides scholarships, life coaching, mentors, housing, and personalized attention to emancipated foster youth. So please support Dance Marathon and donate :] Thank you!

I think I would scare people with my dancing, so I'll write a check instead. 6 years ago
