Why do you dance?
raiseRED is something sacred to my heart. I have had family members fight and lose the battle to different forms of cancer. I dance for them. I dance for the families who continue the fight each day.
I dance for the kids who deserve the world and are stronger than I’ll ever know.
Advice for first time dancers?
When someone tells you to think of why you dance or says “FTK,” don’t let it just go in one ear and out the other. Take the words and let them resonate with you. You are apart of something bigger than you understand so take that as an opportunity to dance and laugh — not to sit and sleep!
Favorite raiseRED memory?
When we did the line dance in 2015, to reveal the total, I had not say down and I was standing near all of the families. Seeing their reaction and knowing we reached our goal – knowing that money was going to help the families I was looking right at – will be something I never forget.
