Recent Events Summary

 

  • “Christmas in June” @ Duke Children’s – (Andrew, Steven, Thor) – Had a wonderful time hanging out with the kids and summer Santa!

     

  • “8-Bit Disaster” @ Ruckus – (Andrew) – Concert was great; got about 8-10 signups!

     

  • Mortal Kombat Tournament @ Boxcar – Nine participants (nasty storm probably kept crowd low).

     

  • Received $460 from Boxcar for June’s “Drink for a Cause” night.  Our next Boxcar event in August will also be part of “Drink for a Cause”!

     

Hospital Update

 

  • Endless Possibilities Dance Program:

     

    • Organized by Duke physical therapist Kristi Duke, this dance program received a Kid’s Care Grant which is all made possible due to fundraising efforts such as ours for Extra Life!  The program aims to promote children to dance and the “endless possibilities” that result from these movements.  Patients and their siblings are encouraged to participate, and the program is free for the families!  Many dance instructors from ballet, flamenco, hip-hop, African dance, and other styles have volunteered their time to show these kids a great time and teach some moves!  Free T-shirts are also provided for everyone!  What a wonderful program!
