This year instead of having a traditional birthday party, I had a benefit for Believe in Tomorrow! Look at some previous posts for more details and pictures! I presented the giant check for $500 to the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation!!
After the check presentation, I had the opportunity to take a tour of Johns Hopkins Hospital, particularly the children’s oncology floor (because I’d like to become a pediatric oncologist). I’m so thankful to Sean and Believe in Tomorrow/Johns Hopkins for this amazing opportunity and experience!
I was able to participate, along with many other dancers, in this dance concert, raising funds for Brooklyn’s mission trip to Uganda! I love seeing other teens make a difference! (That’s what Margo’s M.O.D.E.L.S. is all about!) This was such a great idea and so much fun!
I spoke to the Ladies Auxiliary at the American Legion to thank them for generously donating a space to hold my Birthday-Benefit Party, raising $500 for Believe in Tomorrow! I was also able to tell them about Margo’s M.O.D.E.L.S. Check out my other posts to see pictures from the Benefit and during my check presentation!
I had such a great experience at Believe in Tomorrow’s 15th annual Port to Fort 6k walk/run! This event ended up raising over $120,000! Early that morning, I started by helping with registration. I also had the amazing honor to sing the national anthem before the race for about 2700 people! I loved seeing so many people support the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation!
Hundreds of people, specifically over 100 men, came together to support Rape Crisis Intervention of Carroll County at the 3rd annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes! I taught the men, including a staff member at 98 Rock, how to walk in their heels before they completed the mile. I walked in 5 inch heels (ouch!) with my dad, who was wearing heels that I put rhinestones on with hot pink toenail polish! This was such a fun way to support a serious cause!
