The 2022 Cape Cod Academy Dance Marathon; in person again!

The 2022 Cape Cod Academy Dance Marathon; in person again!

In 2009, after her battle with invasive breast cancer, Jenn Rako asked Stephanie Viva if she would DJ a dance marathon for breast cancer, and without hesitation, she answered, "YES." This year will be in-person after the last two years of a virtual marathon! It will be the 12th but 10th in-person, and everyone is thrilled.

Cape Cod Academy has been the host for the bulk of the Marathons, and the Pink Ribbon Club has done a fantastic job fundraising and giving this event a home.

Jenn started the Women's Early Detection (WED) Fund in 2017, which is now funded by more than just the CCA Dance Marathon.

Here is the Impact Statement for the WED Fund (Women's Early Detection), the beneficiary of each Cape Cod Academy Dance Marathon. You can see how the fund has done since its inception and last year. It is rewarding to benefit women through Cape Cod Healthcare Foundation with potentially life-saving diagnostic procedures not covered by insurance.

We are looking forward to the event on April 30th from 3-7 PM. In addition to students from Cape Cod Academy, there will be dancers, and their families and friends from Beth Walsh Dance Centre, Dance Designs, Dance Factory Plymouth, Harper Dance Center, and Open Space Studio, Inc. We are open to the public.

You can save 50% on the admission charge (pay only $10) if you pre-register. This can be done at Cape Cod Academy, through one of the attending dance studios, or by Venmo at Dance_Marathon_Cape_Cod
