WHIRL Magazine’s Get UP & Dance campaign — which began on February 1 and runs through this Friday, February 27 — was created with the intention of uniting the Pittsburgh community with healthy movement and support for nonprofit and charity organizations. With just a few days left in the campaign, we are proud to share with you those organizations who have been danced for with purpose. Pittsburgh, you have truly exceeded our expectations!

To see the dance videos, visit whirlmagazine.com/getuppgh, like us on Facebook, or search the hashtag #GetUpPGH on your social media platforms.
