Student Blog-Seth Held

Hello! My name is Seth Held and I am a junior studying public accounting here at Hope College.
It wasn’t until my second semester freshmen year that I really started to learn about Dance Marathon. After witnessing the enormous and selfless support for both families and the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital provided by Hope College Dance Marathon, I quickly realized I had to join the cause. As a son and close friend of people who have been affected by deadly diseases, I have learned that it takes a team to help take on the many different diseases.
My Dance Marathon experience includes two years of dancing 24 hours, and this year I have been privileged with the opportunity to be one of two team captains of the Emersonian Fraternity. My goal is to dance the 24 hours all four years, following in the footsteps of some of those whose commitment to Dance Marathon I admire most. It will take a team to fight disease, and as Henry Ford succinctly stated, “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” I could not be more excited to be a part of the Dance Marathon team as we accomplish even greater heights this year!
