Calling all movers and shakers, it’s time to get your dancing shoes on, as registrations are now open for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) national Dance for Sick Kids fundraiser.
RMHC is calling on people of all ages and abilities to make time for some serious fun and Dance for Sick Kids this May. This 7-day dance challenge will move you from Monday 23 – Sunday 29 May.
All funds raised will support families staying at Ronald McDonald Houses around the country. Dance for Sick Kids aims to raise $1.6 million, which provides 10,000 nights of support.
This year, a host of famous faces are pledging their support, including Yellow Wiggle, Tsehay Hawkins, who joins Australian dance legends Marko Panzic and Jarryd Byrne, as an Ambassador for Dance for Sick Kids 2022.
With free access to 1000+ on-demand dance classes for May, Dance for Sick Kids welcomes everyone to get moving and grooving for a good cause.
Tsehay Hawkins, Dance for Sick Kids Ambassador, said, “I am extremely proud to be a Dance for Sick Kids Ambassador for 2022. Dance is one of my biggest passions, and I can’t wait to share that with people across the country, all in support of the invaluable work of RMHC.
“I encourage all Aussies to get involved; whether you wake up and shake it up or finish the day with a boogie, let’s have some fun and raise funds to help seriously ill and injured children and their families.”
Barbara Ryan, Chief Executive Officer, Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia, said, “We’re calling on everyone across Australia – from individuals to dance studios, community groups, workplaces and schools – to shimmy on over! No matter your age or dance skill, this feel-good fundraiser is for everyone.
So please, make time for some serious fun and Dance for Sick Kids this May. After all, we know it always feels good to dance and dancing for sick and injured children feels life-changing.”
