Student Organization Spotlight: DaCadence a Capella
DaCadence a Capella was Terp Thon 2016's top fundraising student organization, donating over $4,525 and registering 13 participants. DaCadence formed a special bond with our Miracle Kid Tess and welcomed her with open arms into their family.
“We are so happy to be a part of something greater than ourselves like Terp Thon!! It's amazing how our involvement has really brought us closer together as a family!”- Zoey Maggid
“Tess came into DaCadence's life and turned it upside down. We, as a group, wanted to do anything and everything we could to make this girl feel as amazing and special as she made us feel. I dance to make a difference in the lives of sick kids fighting harder than they should just to live and breathe each morning. I dance to leave the world a little better than I found it.” -Rebecca Mardesich
