Welcome to Stephanie Nowack's Page

Why am I participating ?

Every dance show needs a Cloris Leachman or Florence Henderson, right?    Guess, it’s my turn to represent the “mature” set.

It’s been a long time since my parents recorded me in my little pink tutu as I prepared for my ballet recitals.  No one needs to worry, though…I won’t be wearing a pink tutu this time.

What I will be doing is dancing my heart out for a dear friend, mentor, and colleague , Jonathan Walker, the President and CEO of the Tucson Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, and his wife , Diana.  Miracle of miracles…after receiving very sobering news about Diana’s health and failing kidneys that were  functioning at less than 20%, Jonathan was tested and found to be a match!!!  He gave his kidney to Diana in February of this year; and we are so thankful to say that they are both doing well and feel blessed every day!   I am blessed to know them, have deep respect for their love and commitment to each other, and am proud to do what I can to help them and the National  Kidney Foundation.
