The countdown is on! With the start of the new year comes the beginning of the final two months until the big event! Here is everything you need to know to be Dance Marathon ready for the months to come!
On January 2nd, Reed Havlik had the honor of being the Kid Captain for the Iowa Hawkeyes at the Outback Bowl in Florida! Let’s keep cheering on Reed, just as he cheers on the Hawks!
Also this month, Addie Brenden had scan results come back clear once again! Addie had been battling Neuroblastoma, but has remained clear since 2015! What a great way to start off the New Year, celebrating milestones with our miracle kiddos!
BUFFALO WILD WINGS GIVEBACK MONTH:
Grab some friends and plan a weekly trip to Buffalo Wild Wings! For the entire month of January, if you mention UNI Dance Marathon, BWW will donate a portion of your bill. Start a new tradition, enjoy some yummy wings, and support our miracle kiddos! This is a perfect way to live everyday, FTK!
