Since 2006 I have been an active participant and supporter of BGSU's Dance Marathon. Dance Marathon at Bowling Green Green State University, is a philanthropic event that raises money to benefit ill or injured children at the Mercy Children's Hospital in Toledo via the Children's Miracle Network. Dance Marathon is run entirely by college students nationwide to benefit local children's hospitals, and BGSU is proud to have one of the largest and most active Dance Marathon organizations in the nation.
My freshmen year I was a dancer in which I was on my feet for 32 hours straight. It was challenging, but so rewarding as it inspired me to continue my involvement with BGDM. My sophomore year I was a moraler and which for more than 24 hours kept the dancers going because I know how challenging dancing can be.
My senior year I took part in BG's unique Bike for Tikes program in which I did a 180 mile bike ride from Cincinnati to Bowling Green. It was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life to help the children's miracle network and all the children of St. V's. . It was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life to help the children's miracle network and all the children of St. V's. Just this past year the BG DM bikers were able to raise over $65,000 for the kids.
Now as an alumna I still want to continue to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. This organization helps sick children all over the country still as they face heroic challenges on a daily basis battling the illnesses they suffer from. The miracle children I have had the honor of meeting are truly an inspiration to the unrelenting strength the human spirit can have. If I can help to raise money to help make miracles happen for them then I hope you will vote for me and donate whatever you can for this great cause. Afterall, it's for the kids.
There are some awesome promos going on right now: If you donate $26 you could be entered to win an Ipad 2!
