iDance4aCURE is fueled by dedicated volunteers across the nation! 

We work to maximize donations to research!

iDance4aCURE began their journey, on October 8, 2013, not only to raise awareness, but to be an active leader in the fight against childhood cancer by raising funds for cutting edge research. In less than two years, iDance4aCURE has quickly grown into a nationally recognized movement that is mobilizing the entire dance community in the fight against childhood cancer. With the commitment of dance studios, students, teachers, and choreographers, competitions and conventions, to date, iDance4aCURE has already contributed over $315,000 directly to fund cutting edge research at Children’s Hospitals across the globe.  There are many childhood cancer organizations that do great things. What sets iDance4aCURE apart is that, as dancers, we work together to raise funds for cutting edge research. The only way to fight childhood cancer is through research and research must be funded.  ​iDance4aCURE remains committed to raising $1 million for childhood cancer research while uniting the dance world, educating and empowering a new generation of childhood cancer advocates. 

RESEARCH IS THE KEY TO A CURE.

Our message has quickly reached across the globe and inspired dance studios, schools, individual dancers, choreographers and other dance organizations to join the fight against childhood cancer by hosting dance marathons, parties, master classes, performances and simple donation boxes.  Won't you Join us? iDance4aCURE is part of the TBKF and is a 501(C)(3) not for profit.

ABOUT US

We are Making a Difference!

S​ince our inception on November 16, 2013, iDance4aCURE has begun funding promising and exciting childhood cancer research. Following is a breakdown of how some of our funds have been distributed:

  • $131,000 to Dr. Cath Bollard of Children's National Health Systems (DC) for help fund her Killer T-Cell Immunotherapy Trials. Dr. Bollard is removing immune system T cells and training them to recognize and kill cancer cells. This research will translate to leukemia, neuroblastoma and brain tumors.
  • $45,500 to Dr. Javad Nazarian of Children's National Health System for his cutting edge gene therapy brain tumor research. Dr. Nazarian's team is trying to teach our genes to recognize tumor cells and stop them from growing.
  • $45,000 was donated through the Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation to the MATCH-NB Neuroblastoma Trial at Children's Hospital Philadelphia (PA) run by Dr. John Maris and Dr. Yael Mosse. 
  • $42,500 to Dr. Derrick Hansen, Hackensack University Medical Center for the use of hydroxy oleic acid in the treatment of childhood solid tumors.
  • $53,000 to Dr. Adam Shlien, Peter Gilgan Centre for Research for Ewings Sarcoma research through Ewings Cancer Foundation of Canada.  

We look forward to funding much more childhood cancer research in the very near future.
