Who remembers our flash mob from 2011? This was Claire's Place Foundation's kick off event and it was so much fun! The money we raised was the seed money to start our non profit and we are still going strong 7 years later and have helped hundreds of families. Thank you to all who participated in this and who have supported us in our mission ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’– The Pretenders Studio did the choreography and helped us raise the money and #FlashmobAmerica helped us pull it off. #AlwaysGrateful #cysticfibrosis #CFAwareness #FlashMob
