Dance for the Cure was recognized for its outstanding efforts in 2022. The organization received prestigious proclamations from the Borough of Somerville, Hillsborough Township, Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners, the Township of Warren and Bridgewater Township, as well as a resolution from South Brunswick Township. Additionally, Dance for the Cure co-founder, Kathleen Cirioli, was invited to attend a meeting of the Raritan Township Committee to share the mission and history of Dance for the Cure.
These recognitions highlight the significant impact that Dance for the Cure has had in the local community, and serve as a testament to the dedication and hard work of the organization's volunteers.
One of the key ways that Dance for the Cure supports breast cancer patients and their families is through the provision of monetary gifts. To date the organization has gifted over $925,000 to women in need. In addition to this, the organization promotes breast cancer awareness through two initiatives: Tie the Town Pink and The Pink Bow Project.
For Tie the Town Pink, volunteers decorate the streets, trees, railings, and flagpoles around the municipal complexes of Somerset, Hunterdon and Middlesex counties to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Pink Bow Project involves volunteers making and distributing big pink bows to area stores and businesses during the month of October.
On October 20th, 2022, Dance for the Cure also held its 16th annual fundraiser, Ribbons of Hope, to raise money and awareness for breast cancer patients in the community. This event brings together individuals from all walks of life, united in their commitment to support those affected by breast cancer.
The recognition received by Dance for the Cure in 2022 highlights the organization's commitment to making a difference in the lives of breast cancer patients and their families, and serves as a reminder of the importance of charitable organizations like Dance for the Cure, and the crucial role they play in supporting those in need.
