Encore Dance Centre will be hosting our 1st Annual Cancer Carnival in honor of Mackenzie Asher. She was a fighter and impacted so many lives with her strong will and gracious laugh. It is in her memory we continue to help the fight and support those who lift up the spirits of children and families battling cancer. Mack loved the women of 10 Strong who dedicate every Wednesday to families on the 10th floor of the OU Children's Medical Center. They give children and their families something to look forward to every week and We all know she loved the ice cream socials and the milk and cookies. Please join us for fun, games, Kona Ice, Cupcake Walk, Catch a can and a few silent auction items. If you are unable to attend, please visit www10strongokc.com and donate directly! God Bless! @10strongokc @encoredanceokc #makeseptembergold #childhoodcancerawareness
Beth McDowell "I still remember Mackenzie racing around and her dad trying to keep up to make sure she would win her unicorn."
With little to look forward to during treatment and confinement to the 10th floor, 10 Strong moms knew there was a need for some fun on our floor. Our goal was to give our families something to look forward to. Wednesdays quickly became the best day to fight cancer.
Each Wednesday evening the 10 Strong wagons roll onto the floor. “They’re here!” Kids are excited and parents are anxious to get out of their hospital room. We have five regular events that rotate around special events. Waffle Night, Milk & Cookies, Italian Soda Bar, Movie Night and, the newest, Ice Cream Social.
