Bri Cappos (left), a fifth-year student in the College of Engineering from Tinley Park, Illinois, said she dances for her brother. “When I was little, my brother was in the hospital for a really long time. He has this really rare disease called Kawasaki’s. It was really, really rare the first time he got it but then he got it again, so I spent a lot of time in the hospital. So, when I heard about PUDM, I thought, "'Why not give back to the families that are probably going through what my family went through?'"
Alisa Santiago (right), a junior in the College of Science from Meadville, Pennsylvania, said she dances for a different reason. “Because I love kids. I worked at a daycare for like four years and I have four younger siblings, so I just love kids.”
