Saddleback College is hosting its inaugural Dance Against Cancer on May 2 in the college gymnasium to support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a charity that raises money for childrens’ cancer research, and Be the Match, which raises money for bone marrow transplants.
According to Audra DiPadova, director of student life, Saddleback holds two service projects a year, one during the fall semester and one during the spring. This event will feature dance-offs, costume contests, a food truck and prizes.
“This is our spring service project and it’s an opportunity for students in our community to give back to do something outside the scope of something we normally do day to day here,” DiPadova said.
This relay dance marathon, from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., requires teams to have one team member moving on the floor at all times.
“You will always have someone on the floor at any given time,” DiPadova said. “They don’t have to have moves, they just have to be moving. It’s a relay, so as soon as someone leaves the floor you have to have another team member who goes on the floor, so it should be pretty interesting.”
Teams of two or more students must register for the dance online or in Student Services Center 210 before May 2.
