#TransformToday Reflection

 

As Transform Today has come to an end, we reflect on the passion, support and unity exhibited on this special day.

We set a goal to raise $500,000 in 26.2 hours for 500 individuals whose lives have been transformed by one fearless fight against childhood illness.

Throughout the day, campus was painted with every color of Dance Marathon polos. Captains, ELPs, and supporters passed out flyers and canned to raise money and awareness.

The Plaza of the Americas, a free speech area on campus, was decked out in DM.

Overall Captains took pies to the face for donations, Miracle Children encouraged participants and supporters to keep pushing to reach their goals, an ELP lead an FTKardio class, free tie-dyeing took place with the purchase of a Transform Today shirt and the Wall of Fame was set as an incentive to raise $500.

A lot was happening, but it was the comradery, dedication and desire to make an impact that left a mark on all who took part in Transform Today.

At Dance Marathon at the University of Florida, our goal is to Redefine Tomorrow. We strive to do this so that one day no child will battle against life-threatening illnesses.

Days like Transform Today motivate and inspire us to continue working to make a difference. It serves as an example that together we can do anything we put our minds to.

As we move on from Transform Today, I encourage you to think about how you can make individual strides to Redefine Tomorrow in your everyday life.

The question is, how will you Redefine Tomorrow?
