Why We Relay.

 

Dear Curtain Call Families,

This month I am writing about something that is very close to our hearts at the studio: our Relay for Life team and our passion for raising money for cancer research. Last week you donned your best pink leotards, bows and socks and wore pink in support of this cause for our annual pink out week in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We appreciate your spirit and support! Read on for more information on how else to get involved, our history with the American Cancer Society and how we were inspired to give back to our community and loved ones.

Happy Reading!

With Love and Pointed Toes,

Miss Sara

Curtain Call Dance Center and the Relay for Life relationship 

Why do we relay?

At Curtain Call, our goal is to teach our dancers more than dance. We encourage them to be ambassadors to the community and to give back to others. Our relationship with Relay for Life and raising money for cancer research goes back to 2006.

 

Our inspiration:

Miss Andra is our Relay for Life Captain and the pulse behind our efforts for awareness.

Andra was diagnosed with breast cancer after serving as Team Captain for three years. She was diagnosed again in 2011 with colon cancer. In direct accordance to her positive demeanor she chooses to never ask “why?” but instead use her experiences with cancer as a tool to educate and bring awareness. She is a cancer survivor, advocate for mindfulness and one of the strongest and caring individuals one will ever meet. She is truly the spirit behind curtain call and our Relay for Life efforts.

Want to get in the Spirit too? Join our Relay for Life Team? See Miss Andra at our front desk and she would be happy to get you started and talk more with you about her journey for a cancer free world.

 

 

 

Impact:

Our Curtain Call Relay for Life team has totaled over $75,799 since 2006. We have been the top fundraiser in Wayne Township and in Brownsburg starting last year in 2018.
