Welcome to My Personal Page for Why I am For the Kids!
To My Family and Friends,
Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page for why I am a part of this amazing organization! Please support me in my commitment to support BuckeyeThon For The Kids! BuckeyeThon is the largest student-run philanthropy in the state of Ohio. With the ultimate goal of ending childhood cancer, (our largest event being the Dance Marathon) we raise funds and awareness for the Hematology, Oncology, and BMT Unit of Columbus’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital: Nationwide Children’s Hospital. If you know me well, you propbably know that I am not one to ask for a lot of things. I was raised by my amazing mom and dad to be greatful everyday for what I have been given and to always be humble and kind. However, I am now asking you for something that will change the lives of so many. The reason that I am For the Kids is because I was blessed with such a beautiful life, full of endless opportunities. Every child deserves to grow up with the opportunity to dream their wildest dreams and make them reality, but unforunately there are so many kids that do not get the chance to be a kid. This is why I dance. I dance for those who don't have the same opportunies that I did, so that one day WHEN, not if, we end this awful disease, kids everywhere get to grow up laughing with their best friends; they get to dance like there is no one watching (which, if you know me, is all of the time); they get to graduate from high school, then college; they get to spend the rest of their years living their best lives and chasing their wildest dreams because of what we did to end pediatric cancer. I am so optimistic that we can change the lives of millions of kids, starting with this amazing movement that I am so proud to be a part of, so please continue reading more about this incredible organization and what you can do to help.
BuckeyeThon hosts a variety of events throughout the year, which culminate in its signature event: the Dance Marathon, a celebration full of hope and fun for the BuckeyeThon Families, Team Members, and supporters. Last year, over 4,000 passionate Ohio State students and the Buckeye community raised over $1.6 million For The Kids!
This year, I have pledged to be a Miracle Maker and raise at least $2,000 in order to help Ohio State fundraise even more for Nationwide Children's. Miracle Makers are true leaders in the BuckeyeThon movement whose efforts emulate what it means to be For The Kids and who fight for the idea that Every Kid Deserves to be a Buckeye. Please help me go beyond that goal this year to truly change lives. The money raised goes to a wide variety of initiatives to help the Kids, such as Art Therapy, Chemotherapy treatments, cancer research, and even tutoring sessions with teachers. Your donation goes far beyond to help the kids succeed in all aspects of life!
