Redmond Proficiency Academy to Raise $4,000 for Children’s Miracle Network

Senior student organizes Dance Marathon fundraiser on October 14

The Redmond Proficiency Academy is pleased to announce that senior student Katie Bullock has organized a Dance Marathon to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network, an organization that raises funds and support for families with premature babies. Students from throughout Central Oregon are invited to participate in the dance and fundraising effort.

The event will be a four-hour dance marathon to raise money for CMN. It will be held at the RPA middle school multi-purpose room at 150 SW 25th Street in Redmond from 2:00pm to 6:00pm on October 14th.

Bullock has a personal connection to the Children’s Miracle Network and she decided to take action and raise $4000 for CMN. "CMN is an organization that does so much good, including saving the life of my cousin Delainey,” said Bullock. “The least I can do is try to give back to an organization that has given so much to me.”

Bullock’s plan is for 100 dancers to each raise $40. Each dancer must individually fundraise for the event, and the dancer who raises the most money will win a prize basket. Students can register for the event and create a donation website where friends and family can support. The registration deadline is noon on Friday, October 14th and check in begins at 1:30pm. There will be refreshments and food for the participants.

"We have had so much support pour out from the Central Oregon business community,” said Bullock. “I am very excited to provide our dancers with opportunities to win prizes from incredible local businesses.”

Sponsors include T and T Marketing, Baldy’s BBQ, Amber Wilson at Umpqua Bank, and Humm Kombucha.
RPA is still welcoming sponsorships. Please contact event contact advisor, Hillary Kirk at 541.526.0882.
