Park Ridge, NJ, December 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Anita Ehrler’s Dance Extensions, a school of performing arts in Park Ridge, New Jersey is proud to be uniting with the National iDance4aCURE Campaign to end childhood cancer by raising funds to support cutting edge childhood cancer research.
Anita Ehrler’s Dance Extension’s “iDance4aCure Dance Marathon” will take place this Saturday, December 19, 2015 from 5:00pm - 8:00pm at 208 Hawthorne Ave Park Ridge, New Jersey.
Dancers will raise funds by pledging to dance three consecutive hours. Dancers have been raising funds for the past few weeks and have raised, to date, a total of $16,117.00! Over 110 dancers from Bergen and Rockland Counties who are a part of Anita Ehrler’s Dance Extensions Competition Company will be participating in the iDance4aCURE Marathon.
“We are thrilled to be uniting with committed dancers from across the nation to fight against childhood cancer!” states Studio Director, Anita Ehrler.
Since the first iDance4aCURE Marathon on November, 2013, iDance4aCURE has contributed over $150,000 and gained national attention by uniting and educating dancers, choreographers, dance teachers, dance studios and schools from around the globe to become active advocates in the fight against childhood cancer. 100% of all proceeds raised at iDance4aCure events go to national childhood cancer research programs. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital at Hackensack UMC.
The statistics on childhood cancer may surprise you. Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the US today. Today, 7 children will die of cancer and 43 children will be diagnosed with cancer. Of every 5 children diagnosed with cancer - 1 child will die - 4 children will have long-term negative side effects from their treatment. Currently only 4% of Federal cancer funding is allocated to childhood cancer research. More needs to be done for our children.
