The Bob Trot 5K is a family-friendly event that will take place at the Savannah River Rapids Park and will course along the trail at the Augusta Canal.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma and Hodgkin’s disease, improve access to care for all, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Dance, Hope, Cure is a childhood cancer awareness campaign, of which leukemia is one of the most common types of childhood cancers, whose mission is to shine a light on the state of childhood cancer research funding by uniting the childhood cancer community, members of Congress, top pediatric oncologists and several of the country’s most influential celebrities.

As a future occupation, I dream of being a pediatric oncologist to help pursue the fight of trying to find a cure for childhood cancer. I have always had a passion of helping others and making someone smile. Added on to my future goal, my father was diagnosed with Angioimmuno Blastic T-Cell Lymphoma this past March. It has caused a huge impact on my life, but dance has been there for me through it all. Dance is a place for me to express myself and surround myself with loving people who support me through the fight. I hope to spread awareness of the fight for childhood cancer through my passion for dance with my community and nationwide. My fight is strong because I want to cure cancer and spread awareness. Positivity is key when negativity is occurring, a smile has the power to change the world.
