Alex Grady's Story
Hi! My name is Alex Grady and I'm a sophomore from Iowa City, Iowa. Growing up in a college town (University of Iowa), I was surrounded by the idea of Dance Marathon from a young age. Starting in junior high I began to participate in the University of Iowa's Dance Marathon as a Spirit Dancer, which basically meant I got to be there for 4 hours during their 24 hour Big Event! Ever since my first Dance Marathon I realized that this was an organization that held a huge place in my heart. My family and high school community had been affected a lot by cancer and I knew that I wanted to help put a stop to it! Coming to Alabama UADM was the first organization that I made sure to reach out to. I'm now blessed to be in the second year of working for the Recruitment Team (whoop!) and I love seeing the progress that we're making as a group. This organization has helped me find a passion and given me a way to help better the world a dance at a time!
