This year I will be participating in the marathon as a steering member. I have been involved in dance marathon for two years and have gone to all of our marathons. I am on the Riley Development group, which is in charge of bringing Riley families to the event to share their story. In this group we also run the Care Fair which is a smaller version of the marathon for children. My favorite part of dance marathon is going to Riley Hospital on a tour. It is really inspiring to here about the struggles that some kids are able to over come.
During the marathon, "Dancers" stay on their feet to show support for the families and children of Riley Hospital and to generate awareness about the cause. "We stand up for those who can't stand for themselves." The day will consist of: interaction with Riley children and family members, special guests from campus and the local community, diverse selection of music, loads of FUN games and food.
Please join me in support of Riley Hospital for Children. Contributions made from this fundraising page will help Riley Hospital for Children achieve medical milestones that translate directly to improved care and lives saved.
It is remarkable how many Hoosiers that Riley Hospital has touched, and it is gratifying to see how generous people can be when given the opportunity to support Riley Hospital. Riley patient A.J. Stinger is an inspiration for all of us.
A.J. has been treated at Riley Hospital since he was diagnosed with leukemia in 2007. He continues to smile and inspire others with his courage, compassion and commitment to help others. A.J.'s big heart, along with his spunk and resolve, led to him being selected as Indiana's ambassador for Champions Across America, which honors remarkable children who have triumphed despite severe medical challenges. A.J. personifies the hope that happens every day at Riley Hospital.
Join me and great kids like A.J. as we raise money for Riley Hospital for Children. Click the "Give Now" button to make your donation and forward this fundraising page to anyone you think may want to become involved in this remarkable cause. On behalf of myself and Riley, thank you for your support.
