Dare to Dance 2011: Local celebrities join fight against kidney disease

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- Saturday night, local celebrities burned up the dance floor for the fourth annual Dare to Dance!

The dance competition raises money for the Kidney Foundation of Greater Chattanooga. All of the proceeds donated Saturday night, and throughout the year, stay within the Greater Chattanooga area.

Channel 3's own Callie Starnes laced up her dancing shoes, and joined the fight against kidney disease. The co-anchor of Eyewitness News at 11 says she is honored to have been part of the fundraiser, and says the experience is one she'll never forget.

"I am so proud to be a part of this year's Dare to Dance cast," Callie says. "It's exciting to know the money raised will go to local families; that's what it's really all about."

Several other notable names and their dance partners took to the dance floor in an effort to make a difference.

Those with the foundation continue to count the money donated, and say a grand total will be available soon. 

Callie Starnes took third place overall with a score of 48 out 50 and says it won't be the last time she cuts a rug!

"I plan to keep dancing," she says.

Channel 3 would like congratulate all of those who participated on a job well done!
