Review for DrumsForCures :: drumSTRONG, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've known Scott Swimmer, the founder of drumSTRONG, for a while now, and this wonderful organization is a testament of how anyone can identify a need and act upon it to make a change in our society. Scott eats, sleeps, and breathes DrumsForCures, working with great desire to raise funds to support cancer research and general awareness, especially within the community. More importantly, funds raised stay primarily in the community and support local initiatives. Held in May each year, drumSTRONG is a sight to behold - a marathon drumming event that exceeds 24 hours (2008 went for 27 hours). The people who take part are just as caring and wonderful as Scott.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the atmosphere and laid back attitude of those involved. Cancer is a serious issue, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun raising awareness.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic, caring, and genuinely GOOD people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand and provide more matching funds to its various recipiants
