A big THANK YOU to all the wonderful community members who supported this fundraiser for Darby's Dancers, our program that provides dance classes to children with special needs. February 22, 2022 was the picture perfect morning to stroll around Santee Lakes in Santee, CA for a beautiful 2.2 mile fun run! 125 participants as well as some extra family members, children, and bystanders dressed up in tutus for this amazing event.
At approximately 9am, racers took their marks, while Jack, one of our amazing Darby's Dancers, shouted Ready, Set, Go!
It was incredible to see so many families and groups come together to support this life-changing program. We even had the Santana Cross Country team come out to run the course. They helped to guide everyone from the top of Lake 5 down to take 2 laps around Lake 3, then straight up the west side of the Lakes to the finish line waiting for them at the North end of Lake 5.
Later some of the Darby's Dancers danced for a cheering crowd of racer and supporters. Some of the Expressions Dancers who are on Performing Company performed solos and our Smile Squad (EDMC's Community Performance Group) danced for the crowd to celebrate this wonderful event and the growth of Expressions' Darby's Dancers Program!!!
