2018 DANCERS REVEALED

JASON PELLEGRINI

JASON PELLEGRINI
CEO of Quantum Health


What was your first thought when asked to be part of Shall We Dance?
Nervous and excited. I’ve never taken a dance class in my life but what a fantastic opportunity to raise money for a great cause.

Why did you say ”Yes” to dancing in Shall We Dance?
I’ve had 2 close friends pass away from Cancer. The struggle of everything beyond just the cancer is well known to me.

What was your first thought when asked to be part of Shall We Dance?
“What? Me? Are you sure you’ve got the right person?” I was in shock and somewhat scared because I am not a dancer. Yet, there was no way I could say no to helping children.

Why did you say “Yes” to dancing in Shall We Dance?
Being able to help kids in any way I can is my reason to say yes! Learning to dance and stepping way out of my comfort zone are added bonuses.
