I am Dancing for Sick Kids!

This May, I will be Dancing for Sick Kids!

Please show your support by sponsoring me today.

All funds raised will help seriously ill or injured children and their families by providing a home-away-from-home at Ronald McDonald House, whilst they receive critical care and treatment.

On average, it costs Ronald McDonald House Charities $160 to support a family for one night, so please give what you can, every dollar counts. 

Thank you for helping me make a difference!

Excited to see everyone! 

We are encouraging early donations via the link prior to the event to tick off the admin side of things :) 

PLANNING OUR FUNDRAISER

Saturday 24th Apr
Yesterday, I popped a post up on Facebook to see who might want to join me on Sunday 16th May for the main event... I pitched a 'fine dance sandwich' of Social dancing, a fun modern Jive class followed by ore social dancing and the response was GREAT! It will be so incredible to see everyone again after quite some time and I am already so grateful that this idea has already been so positively received :) 

Thank you to my Sponsors

Woo hoo! Go Helen! xxxx

I'm dancing for seriously ill children like Emily.

At just four years old Emily was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer and a life-threatening brain tumor. Since then her family has spent 149 nights (and counting) at Ronald McDonald House.

"I think sometimes, as parents, we focus on our sick child who needs the help the most, but we all need help. So that is something I love about the (Ronald McDonald) House, is that we can be together through the journey"

– Jono, Emily's Dad
