5/10/14, 1-3 p.m.!
(Download flyer & share with others HERE)
Dance Out Diabetes Executive Director, Theresa Garnero, will lead us in her very own choreographed easy flash mob routine to Pharrell Williams' chart topping hit "Happy".
Join us at the African American Art & Culture Complex located at 762 Fulton Street
, San Francisco, CA 94102 (Muni access & free parking).
No need to register. Just show up! You get a $277 value health screening, and if you dance, collect $10 in carrot cash to spend at participating farmers' markets (for kids with diabetes and all adults who participate). The health screening is optional, but it is needed to get the carrot cash reward. We suggest a $10 donation at the door, if you can afford.
Please arrive promptly at 1 p.m. for check-in (or 1:15 p.m. if you are not doing the health screening). Bring water, a snack if you need it, and comfortable shoes. Have a question? Call Theresa at 1-877-765-4386 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
T2 Dance Crew Launches National Campaign; Collaborated with DOD!
Now in our 4th year of serving people with all types of diabetes and including the support circle of families and friends, Dance Out Diabetes has long known the benefits of dancing for the health of it and specifically for diabetes management. Our volunteer-based model has attracted interest far and wide, the latest of which allowed a collaboration with the T2 Dance Crew. They are launching a national campaign to inspire people to use dance as a form of health-inspired exercise.
Check out what the T2 Dance Crew and spokesperson Debbie Allen (the iconic choreographer, dancer, actress and producer) have put together.
What an honor to have our program recognized and to collaborate as such to expand the reach of its benefits.
Debbie Allen, Fik-Shun, Janette Manrara, Dr. Richard Aguilar, and your very own, Theresa Garnero.
Can You Bring Water & Snacks to Share?
It is important to stay hydrated while having fun on the dance floor. Dance Out Diabetes is looking for volunteers to donate and bring water bottles and healthy snacks for participants at the dance. If you can bring to share, great! Otherwise, the water fountain is 3 floors down, so please bring water for yourself. Thanks!
