Love to dance? An event in Rock Island next weekend will have plenty of that.

Everglow, a dance marathon on Saturday, January 14 will be held at the Holiday Inn Ballroom in Rock Island. Foster's Voice and The Gray Matters Collective are presenting the event in an effort to raise funds for and build awareness of mental health counseling and suicide prevention in the Quad Cities. The event will be from 7:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m.

If you want to do it, you can either fundraise the $40 needed to participate or you can pay it yourself. All proceeds from the event will go to help the programs of Foster's Voice and The Gray Matters Collective.

The entry fee also includes a teeshirt, LED wristband, snacks, and music.

The top five fundraisers will be given a special prize and the top individual earner will be named King or Queen Everglow.

Foster's Voice is named after Foster Atwood, the 19-year-old United Township alum who took his life in July 2017.

Haley DeGreve, The Gray Matters Collective Co-Founder and President, told WHBF:

Gray Matters and Foster’s Voice, there’s always the mission. I do like when kids come together, where it shows we can come together to do this work, but we reach different people, there are a lot of people through Foster’s Voice I would have never have met if not for Foster’s Voice.

If you would like to help out the cause, you can donate on their fundraising website here.
