Exactly one week from today, Dance Marathon is hosting their first annual FT5K and it is going to be saweeeeeet! Dance Marathon is a nationwide organization that raises money for local children’s hospitals so that they can get the specialized care that they need! A lot of the times, regular medical instruments and equipment is made for adult sized patients, so it can be difficult for hospitals to keep up with the latest technology AND purchase both adult and child medical equipment. In addition, hospital stays can be scary and children can be in a lot of pain due to their medical condition, so a lot of dance marathon’s money goes towards making their hospital stays more comfortable and fun for children! So one week from today, Concordia’s Dance Marathon is hosting a 5k to raise money for our special cause and to help us reach our goal of raising $25,ooo for the kids! If you want to help us reach our goal, and run a fun 5k, sign up for the 5k we are hosting next Saturday!! You don’t even have to be in the Fargo/Moorhead area to run because you can run a virtual 5k! If you sign up before March 16th, you get a free tshirt! So sign up now by going to Concordia Dance Marathon’s Facebook page!
