DrumStrong is a great organization. They support Cancer research, awareness, education, and provide support to those fighting Cancer. Once a year, a large group gathers in Weddington to drum for 24+ hours. Their goal is to raise money for their initiatives. What’s really, really cool is that cities across the world are gathering at the same time to drum. The rhythm is thought of as the “beat of the community, the beat of hope”.
There will be a drum circle where the drum beat will go continually for over 24 hours. There will also be vendors, food, entertainment, and a health expo. Many of the attendees will be camping overnight to help facilitate the continual drumming.
I am honored to be dancing with my local dance group on Saturday at 2pm. The group will be dancing again on Sunday morning at 10am , but I won’t be able to dance with them on Sunday. Here is a picture of us dancing last year:
