Good morning Gators,
The time is upon us. Dance Marathon is just eight days away. That’s like…24 meals and three trips to the dog park. More importantly, we’re all so close to seeing what a year’s worth of work can do to further support Shands Hospital for Children at UF. Now that’s a cause I can sink my baby teeth into!
Be sure to come visit me today at the DM Kickoff at Hume Field at 5:00 p.m. sharp. I’ll be in one of the corners trying to bribe one of the Hospitality Captains for some extra food from Texas Roadhouse.
Today’s tip for fundraising is simple…send out e-mails!! I know that for a lot of you that’s a given, but some of us might initially be uncomfortable with the idea of e-mailing friends and family for money. Heck, my mom barely even knows how to turn on a computer let alone open her e-mail account. With that said, the people that care about you always want to support you and it’s at least worth asking. At the very worst someone will say no, but at least now you’ve drawn their attention to a great cause. Plus, it might just be five or ten minutes to you, but the money you help raise means so much more to the children in the hospital.
Thank you so much for all of the work that you guys have put in this year. Dance Marathon couldn’t be the event it is today without all of your help. Now get excited to dance Gators!!
