Dancers Against Cancer
January 31st, 2018 by Richie Kormos
Hey, #SQFamily! Feel like helping others? We know you do! Starting this week, our blog will be sharing a new charity every week. So if you’re feeling like you want to make a difference, check out our #DanceCharityOfTheWeek every Wednesday! We’re starting off this week with the Dancers Against Cancer charity.
Chances are, you know someone that’s been affected by cancer in some way. And if you do, you know the toll it can have on the person with cancer, as well as their surrounding friends and family. There’s no question about it, cancer is not a walk in the park. But the good news is, you can do something about it!
Dancers Against Cancer was founded in 2012 after the tragic loss of a young dancer. Since then, the organization has worked hard to provide financial support and inspiration to dance educators, choreographers, dancers and their families impacted by cancer. In fact, the organization has already raised over one million dollars! They are still striving towards their goal of five million, so you can go to https://imadanceragainstcancer.org to help them reach their goal! Cancer is rough, but now we have a chance to help artists and their families that have been affected by cancer. So go ahead and help your fellow dancer in need!
