The Shimmython is a real, live, shimmy-till-you-drop competition! At the same
will be given for both the longest shimmy-er as well as the person who raises the
most funds for the charity.
Come out and shimmy for a cause! This year’s charity is the Alliance for a
Healthier Generation. The Alliance for a Healthier Generation aims to reduce the
nationwide prevalence of childhood obesity by 2015 and to empower kids
nationwide to make healthy lifestyle choices. Created by The American Heart
Association, Bill Clinton, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Alliance works to
positively affect the places that can make a difference to a child’s health: homes,
schools, restaurants, doctor’s offices, and communities.
Friends, colleagues, businesses, and anyone who might like to support your
efforts in the competition and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation can make
donations. A minimum total of $50 in donations is required to compete in the
contest on stage at Cairo Caravan.*
Prizes will be awarded for both the contestant who gathers the most money from
donations as well as the contestant who shimmies the longest! One person can
win both prizes!!
Donation forms and the contest rules are attached to this email. Please download
and print them for your future reference and convenience.
Shimmython materials will be available for download from the website soon!
Can’t participate in the Shimmython? Maybe you don’t have the time to collect
donations, or the stamina to compete on stage… either way, we can still use your
donations! All donations and proceeds will go to the Alliance for a Healthier
Generation. Donations can be any dollar amount. Please look for the donate link
on the website.
*$50 may be obtained via donations or a donation may be made by the
contestant. We do encourage all contestants to get as many donations possible
to help support the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
