"And we danced, and we cried, and we laughed, and had a really really really good time" ❤ Can't believe it has already been a week since the Big Event 2017! I am extremely proud of what our Panther family was able to raise this year for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network: $453,278.06, over $53,000 above our goal!! UNI Dance Marathon has changed my life, and I am so glad it has. I love every single person that is a part of this organization, and they inspire me to do my best and accomplish the impossible each and every day. If someone would have told me last year that I was going to raise $1000 by myself, I would not have believed them. Yet, here I am, holding the 1K button I've wanted since day one. No one or their family should ever have to go through what these families have to endure and I will keep dancing until that becomes a reality. I dance for the memories to made, just like the ones I made last Saturday. Once again, so proud of all of the dancers last week, especially our development committee who organized and led all of the Mini marathons across the state! "We dance for the chance, cuz there ain't no better way, UNI DM is FTK!!"
