Friends and Family,

I am FTK ( for the kids), welcome to my Miracle Network Dance Marathon fundraising page! Many of you donated to my page in the past and I wanted to give you a big thank you from all the boys and girls at the Arnold and Winnie Palmer Hospitals and their parents!!!

I'm on a mission to help sick and injured kids in my local community and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury, or even their family's ability to pay. This is my third year participating in the event and I am more excited than ever!!!!!!

To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, I'm participating in a movement called Miracle Network Dance Marathon. Students pledge to raise funds and awareness for patient families at Aronld and Winnie Palmer Hospitals and the year culminates with an 8 hour event (the Mini Dance Marathon), where we’ll get to meet patient families, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and reveal the fundraising total from the entire year! It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to Arnold and Winnie Palmer Hospitals! If you are a high-school aged student you are welcomed and encouraged to come join in the fun, if not don’t worry because me and my executive board friends are planning lots of activities for you to participate in leading up to the event!!!! 

My goal it to raise awareness, funds and prayers for all the sick children, and their families in my community!!! Get excited, with your help we will truly be FTK!!! Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation. I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids. I need you to be FTK and to spread awareness and prayers for these kids!!! Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
