Dear Friends

Benjamin & Stephanie practicing their dance moves!

Dear Friends,

There are some things in life you just can’t do alone. As the African saying goes: “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.”

I’m asking you to join me in my cause supporting the St. Louis Independence Center in their work to help those facing the challenges of mental illness by providing a safe sanctuary, comprehensive support and a strong sense of community.

I am dancing with the St. Louis stars to raise awareness of and financial support for the sustainability of the center, which is an indispensable community resource. I need you to partner with me in this dance to help ensure that my participation in Dancing with the St. Louis Stars is a meaningful experience that will enhance and preserve the lives of hundreds of St. Louis residents who face the challenges of mental illness.

Please join me by making a contribution of $10 or more to this worthwhile cause by voting for me:

Thank you,

Benjamin Ola. Akande
