Letter to Alumni

Dear DanceBlue Alumni,

As we reflect on the incredible journey that DanceBlue has undertaken over the years, we are reminded of the tremendous spirit that each of you brought to our community. Your dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment have left an indelible mark on DanceBlue, shaping it into the remarkable organization it is today.

As we progress throughout the year and approach DanceBlue 2024, we are prompted to pause and express our deepest gratitude to the individuals who have played a pivotal role in the success of DanceBlue. You are those individuals – the heartbeat of our community, the driving force behind our shared mission.

Your time as a DanceBlue participant was not merely a dance marathon; it was a transformative experience that transcended the bounds of a physical event. You became the embodiment of hope, resilience, and compassion. Your tireless efforts, whether through fundraising, organizing events, or simply spreading joy, contributed to the lives of those who needed it most.

The impact of your contributions has extended far beyond the walls of Memorial. Families battling pediatric cancer, the medical staff working countless hours, and the children who found strength and perseverance amid their struggles – they all bear witness to the difference you have made. Your legacy lives on in the smiles of those who have felt the warmth of your passion and kindness.

In the face of challenges, you stood strong. In moments of doubt, you found courage. Together, we celebrated triumphs, shed tears for the battles lost, and held each other up when the weight of our mission felt heavy. Your connection to DanceBlue is not confined to a particular time frame; it’s a lifelong bond that we cherish and celebrate, no matter how far away you may be.

As we look ahead to the future of DanceBlue, we are inspired by the foundation you laid, the progress achieved, and the community forever indebted to you. We invite you to continue being a part of this incredible journey – whether by sharing your stories, mentoring the next generation of dancers, or simply reconnecting with fellow alumni.

Thank you for being the embodiment of DanceBlue, for your unwavering commitment to the fight against pediatric cancer, and for leaving an everlasting legacy of love, compassion, and resilience.

With heartfelt gratitude,

The DanceBlue Community
