As we geared up for TCU Dance marathon this year it was with so much excitement as we knew some of our "friends" would be there. Maddy and Alex had the most incredible time. Alex wanted to stay way longer then planned and we dragged Maddy out kicking and screaming! The students were so welcoming and loving. Between Alex and his "dream team" and Maddy and her girl with the bumble bee ears, the kids were surrounded with love.

I always think that finding ways to give and help others is important, but I am humbled by the generosity of these college students who give so much of their time and energy to help raise money for Cook Children's. My hope is that Alex and I , through our speech, were able to express a little of our gratitude and help these precious kids see the difference they are making for so many families in the DFW area. I hope we can all look at these young adults and strive to love and serve as they do.
PS- Did I mention they raised $90,000 for Cook Children's!!!!
