Dancing with the Richmond StarsLooking for something entertaining to do this Friday? You’re in luck, because Dancing with Richmond’s Stars is back and you won’t want to miss it. Ten local celebrities will dance their hearts out to help benefit the Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. One of the stars includes the hospital’s very own Charles Dillard, MD, Director of CHoR’s Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion Clinic.“When I was approached to participate in this year’s Dancing with Richmond’s Stars I was told there was good news and bad news. They told me the good news was that the money raised by the competition was going to benefit our clinic. The bad news is I had to dance,” said Dr. Dillard.Dr. Dillard has been training with his dance instructor, Sandra DeChard, since January 1. Although he’s had nearly 15 lessons, Dr. Dillard’s training regimen was postponed due to the birth of his third child right before Thanksgiving. While the other contestants may have had more time to work on their dance moves, Dr. Dillard seems sure of one thing: regardless of the outcome it’s going to be fun.Dr. Chad Dillard Practicing for the Dancing with the Stars Competition“I’m lucky to have a lot of people who are excited to come and support me, and more importantly help the children at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU,” said Dr. Dillard. “I don’t know whether we’ll win or not but I do know we’ll certainly have fun trying.”Judged by a panel of celebrities, the 3rd Annual Dancing with the Richmond Stars competition benefits the Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. In the past two years the event has raised more than $135,000 for Children’s Hospital Foundation.The fun dance competition takes place this Friday, March 1, 7 p.m. at W.E.
