Tutu Fun Run
Dear MDU Family,
Paying it forward. <3
When I was in middle school Grandma Marilyn HELPED BY paying for extra dance lessons.
In high school, my dance teacher and some school teachers PITCHED IN with special opportunities.
My college career was FUNDED primarily by scholarships (and teaching dance:).
So when we started Misty's Dance Unlimited in 1999, providing need-based SCHOLARSHIPS was a top priority.
Today our Chance to Dance Foundation supports classes for the Boys & Girls Club, kids in foster care, kids with special needs, and families with financial needs, job loss, etc. We exist to stand in the gap for kids.
And, it probably goes without saying that in our current times that scholarships will be MORE IMPORTANT than ever before.
Now, I usually donate my speaking fees as a way to fund our Chance to Dance Foundation, but as you can imagine, the speaking gigs have dried up and I haven't been to an airport in three months.
So, I'm racking my brain while running with the dogs trying to think of what else I can do to keep this program going. And, it hits me... RUNNING!
Whether you walk or run, please consider this a formal invitation to join me for the 1st Annual Virtual TUTU FUN RUN!
A 2.2 mile fun run to support the Chance to Dance Foundation!
RUN it, WALK it, BIKE it, SAKE it...we don't care how you get your 2.2 miles in, just sign up with a $22 donation, download your race bib, and do your miles in a TUTU between June 22 and July 22!
That's it! Have some fun with your family and help some kids.
Doesn't get much better than that!
