We’re excited to reveal that Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee’s very own Cedric Gardner is one of eight teachers in the nation being recognized in Old Navy’s ONward! campaign! Serving as the Davis Club’s dance instructor, Cedric has inspired friends of the Clubs in Milwaukee and beyond, working hard to give our dance team opportunities to showcase their talents on the local and national levels.
As part of the campaign, Cedric teamed up with Pharrell Williams and I Am OTHER to write, record and choreograph a song, dance and video for Old Navy to promote online. Better yet, Cedric made sure two of our dance team members were able to participate in the video, a wonderful opportunity these Club members will appreciate for years to come.
Old Navy is paying these opportunities forward; the retailer is accepting donations at the register at every one of its stores to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada during the ONward! Campaign, from July 27 through August 7. We invite you to donate to the campaign at your nearest Old Navy location to help our partner reach their $1 million goal!
