To all our dancers, sponsors, and contributors, we want to sincerely thank you for making Wake ‘N Shake 2017 the best year yet! The event hosted over 1400 students and raised a total of $334,337.64 by the end of the 12 hours in support of the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund. A “Grammy’s” theme, including songs and dances inspired by some of the music industry’s most iconic performers, kept morale high. We welcomed eight fantastic “Team Champions” who all shared their powerful and emotional stories about their personal fight against cancer. Wake ‘N Shake 2018 is schedule for March 24th, so please be on the lookout about how you can register and donate starting in early 2018!
