I applied to be part of Lakes Region Dancing With the Stars because I was looking for a way to give back and thought I should take my own advice that I always give to others.... so I did just that! I stepped out of my comfort zone and here I am, rehearsing to Dance in front of others and raising money for a great cause. I’m joining many others to raise money for a variety of non-profit charities. I have chosen the Garrett Dunlap Memorial foundation. This foundation raises money and awareness regarding addiction, prevention and education. My life has been touched in many ways regarding addiction. I have friends, family members, friends of family members, students, co-workers and known others who have struggled with, continue to struggle with, have been effected by and who have lost their battle with addiction. I hope you can join me in support of this foundation by making a donation to this important cause!
