For many Duhawks on campus, the phrase, “It’s for the kids!” is much more than a clever marketing tool; it’s a way of life, an inspiration. We spend long, hard hours raising money for the kids; we drive a cumulative 1555 miles to the Children’s Hospital each year to visit the kids, we come together for 12 straight hours without sitting or caffeine to celebrate the struggles won and lost by the kids and as a group, we log over 5000 service hours to our fighting kiddos. To many, they are more than just ‘kids’, they are our motivators, our teachers and our role models.
Preparation for our April 20, 2013 event is well underway. We have lots of changes in store for this year including a time shift from 8pm – 8am to 12pm – 12am and a big fall fundraiser, ‘Extra Life’. We are ready to continue breaking records during our 8th year at Loras in order to make our big event that much more rewarding. Our big event brings the Loras community together to make personal connections with the miracle kiddos and families. Dancers will experience a whole spectrum of emotions at the event including; laughter, sorrow, joy, nostalgia, tears and gratification. To all dancers: we look forward to your help with all of our fundraising efforts, and start shining your dancing shoes now. The April event will be here before you know it!
