Dancing to Make a Difference

The mission of this organization is to raise funds to support the cancer community in Minnesota by funding research, prevention, treatment and other programs relating to the cancer community’s needs. 

The work needed to help support the project called “Dancing To Make a Difference” was to make 14,0000 ribbons. These ribbons needed to be cut, tied, pinned and separated in cancer related colors and bagged and labeled. It took over 255 total hours and more than 19 volunteers to complete this project. Without the commitment of individuals like the ones who helped with this project, it just wouldn’t have been as successful as it was…..raising over $14,000.Thank you Sarah for taking on this project!!!

​Dancing to make a difference is a local fundraiser to raise funds for the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. The RSCRCF supports cancer research,prevention, treatment and other community needs through out the state of Minnesota.

​On Saturday, February 23, 2013 several of the dance studios in the NW suburbs along with one in New Prague and one in Woodbury will have their dancers dancing at their studios to raise the funds for RSCRCF. In all there will be over 2000+ kids Dancing to Make a Difference. The dancers are uniting as an industry and a community to come together for a great cause. Together they know they CAN make a difference.
