Ayo & Teo's Dance Moves Are Inspiring People to Join the National Bone Marrow Registry

April 23, 2018

Rapping dance duo Ayo & Teo may still want “ice on their wrists so (they) look better when (they) dance,” as their 2017 chart topping song, “Rolex,” says. But the two feature a more unusual accessory in their recent dance routine: a cotton swab. After teaming up with DoSomething.org for the Give A Spit About Cancer campaign, Ayo & Teo are encouraging people to join the national bone marrow registry and donate marrow for those suffering from blood cancer.

In their public service announcement, the pro dancers incorporate the cotton swab into a dance routine, showing that a quick swab of the mouth can help fight cancer. Their tongue-in-cheek (literally) dance move is launching the #SwabChallenge, which is meant not only meant to save lives, but also to promote racial justice by encouraging people of all races and backgrounds to register with the bone marrow registry. Those under 18 can participate by sharing the swab challenge to raise awareness and encourage others to get involved.

We love seeing dancers use their talents to help those in need—and extra points for creativity.
