We’re happy to announce that The Messages Project has been accepted as a recipient of a grant from the 2013 Deep Run High School Marathon Dance (DRMD)! Students in Virginia will dance for 27 hours on March 15-16 to raise funds for local non-profits such as ours. Last year, the dance raised $250,000 for 12 charities. Their goal this year is $1 million! The grant we receive will allow us to buy new cameras for our program and pay for postage and DVD costs.
If you live in the Glen Allen, VA, area, you can help the students (and us!) by attending their upcoming fundraisers:
- February 18 at Cheeburger Cheeburger
- February 25 at Chipotle
- March 1 at Sonic Drive-In
- March 13 at Buffalo Wild Wings

If you don’t live in the area and would like to support, you still can! The DRMD offers an Online Donation Form for anyone who would like to contribute to the cause. Please donate if you can. Let’s help the dance reach its $1 million goal!
