WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Dozens of people turned out to Portia Hines park Saturday morning to take part in the Jerusalema Dance challenge for a good cause.
This was the launch of what organizer Rebecca Trammel hopes will become a city-wide craze over the coming months.
The simple dance is helping to raise money for tutors to help kids around the cape fear.
That’s something trammel says is a big need she has heard from many students in the area.
“I just was talking to the kids and I asked them about this school year and I said ‘what made it hard, what made it easy and what would make it better?'” Trammel said. “They were like ‘we need one-on-one help’. And I was like ‘We will make that happen’. Because we make dreams come true for kids.”
Trammel plans to organize a city-wide dance on August 28th to commemorate the 58th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘I Have A Dream’ speech.
