Move 4 Health USA Dance-a-thon

Dancing to support neurological health

 

Movement for Hope held its first dance-a-thon in the United States! The initiative was lead by a group of young students in a program called JAVA, John Adams Volunteer Association.  The programme started with a large Skype education programme in which students participating in the dance-a-thon learned about neurological conditions and what their impact is on society.

Aim:

To improve awareness and funding support for neurological conditions.
 
The students then planned together and took the initiative to run a large school-wide all night dancing event!! The dance-a-thon was titled “Move 4 Health”, where students and the local community danced all night long and raised $2000 to support people with neurological conditions!

Proceeds from the event will be split equally for research, awareness education, and adaptive equipment purchases to improve the outcomes for people with brain & spinal cord illnesses!1011081_466020340156774_1461300054_n
