VUDM Newsletter: January 18-25

Sharing our progress FOR THE KIDS!

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day from VUDM!

Happy Miracle Monday!

Happy #MiracleMonday everyone!! We want to share the story of our miracle child, Logan. Logan was born with Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus and clubbed feet and now has a VP shunt as well. Logan has had 8 surgeries – all at the amazing Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. He loves football and baseball, and nothing stops him or holds him back. Let's keep up the good work FOR THE KIDS so that no illness or injury holds any kid back from a happy, healthy childhood!

Don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram @vudm to stay updated on all of our Miracle Kids and progress through the year.

Mark Your Calendars for ZERO ZEROS!

This Wednesday, VUDM will be attempting to make history for a second time this year. After exceeding our "$10k in a Day" goal by raising over $30,000, we are ready to take over campus for a second time. This time, engagement is key. On January 20th - exactly ONE MONTH from the Big Event - we will challenge every Dancer to raise at least $30. We want to see ZERO $0s on Donor Drive.


Stop by tabling in Rand during lunch (11 AM-1 PM) and Commons during dinner (6-8 PM) and look out for our social media campaign for ideas for fundraising. Together, let's make it happen!!
