In October of 2018, one our precious 10 year old dancers and downtown Suffolk resident was diagnosed with Leukemia. She has been receiving the best care she and her family could hope for by the hands of CHKD, however her immune system remains so weakened that she is unable to do what she loves most... dance! Before her diagnosis, Anna enjoyed dancing ballet, tap, and jazz, and had even been recognized for her kind spirit and encouragement of her classmates. Help the Suffolk community rally around one of their downtown girls and come together to do the thing Anna loves most in this "old fashioned dance-a-thon"! Our teams are sure to have a blast "Dancing Under the Stars" on May 17th! Anna is looking forward to awarding some special awards to teams with the best dance moves and most team spirit!
