Douglas County CASA / Dazzlers Christian Dance

Douglas County CASA Every year in Douglas County, Kansas, dozens of children are removed from their homes and placed under court protection for their own safety. Some of these children are victims of violence, psychological torment, or sexual abuse. Others have been neglected or even abandoned. They are confused and frightened of an uncertain future. Many are placed in foster care. Douglas County CASA is dedicated to making sure these children get the attention they deserve. With the help of specially trained volunteers who advocate for the best interests of these vulnerable children, CASA helps children and teens find safe, permanent and loving homes. Dazzlers Christian Dance Housed in one of Lawrence’s most beautiful dance studios, Dazzlers Christian Dance offers dance teams for girls ages 3 years old through high school. Girls with mental or physical disabilities are never turned away. All girls are welcome no matter their ability to pay. Students are taught dance and performance skills such as coordination, strength, flexibility, alignment, rhythm, and endurance. Through self-discipline, dedication, fun, a positive atmosphere, and constructive criticism, students will gain heightened self-esteem, body awareness, and creativity as well as achieve improved fitness. Each team curriculum is carefully designed with that age group and level in mind. Note: Lawrence Country Club participants are hiking for these two local causes. At time of fulfillment, the pledger can choose how to split pledged funds between the two causes.

108 Done - One week later

Going into last Monday's HHH event, my expectations were all over the place.

It's Over!

It has taken me a few days to find the time and energy to sit down at the computer and reflect on the 100 Hole Hike.

Monday's Insane Golfing Adventure

On Monday, June 24th, five of us will be attempting to walk/run & play 108 holes of golf. That is six rounds of golf in one day!

Who Needs Training?!

As all of you know the golf industry in the Midwest at this time of year can get very busy!

In the beginning...

After spending weeks readying, organizing, and contemplating my hike benefiting Douglas County CASA, I completed my first practice round at Swope Memorial Golf Course yesterday morning.
