I am dancing with the Stars of Charlotte because I am inspired by the work Carolina Breast Friends does through the Pink House, and I want to raise money to support their mission. You can help me by voting with your charitable dollars!
Cel is dancing in honor of Carolyn Jane McCoy, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2010 and Lisa Foley, who is a breast cancer Survivor.
Every donation you make through this page gets me closer to being this year's fundraising winner--but, more importantly, it supports the services Carolina Breast Friends provides for those with breast cancer in the greater Charlotte community. So, I'm very excited to participate in this years event! How much can we raise together?
Thank you in advance for your generosity! It matters.
