#theloveheALSmovement

Her work through her #theloveheALSmovement is to honor her father, Jim Thorpe Award-winning defensive back and College Football Hall of Famer Rickey Dixon. Dixon, 52, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2013. Doctors gave him five years, tops. He can’t walk, can’t talk, and can hardly breathe on his own. Alana’s #theloveheALSmovement primary focus is to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for ALS. Help Alana help her dad!

#After8toEducate

The population of homeless youth in the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) has reached a catastrophic level, with 3,500+ homeless students. In addition to Alana’s #JeansforTeens, After8 brings together community resources to reduce the number of unsheltered young adults and foster self-sufficiency. Alana is thrilled to be a part of this important charity.

Destiny Day Hab Center

Another close to home cause for Alana is in support of her brother Cameron. He suffered from a brain inflammation called encephalitis at the age of six and has had two strokes, was in a coma and is now developmentally disabled. Cameron is a member of the Destiny Day Habilitation Center in Desoto, TX. Alana often connects her community outreach events to this worthy organization.

Jeans for Teens

Over a million young people experience homelessness in the US every year. One item they often request? A pair of jeans! Alana often runs a gently-used jeans drive in her school and community so she can donate them at a local shelter. Thereby directly providing an essential clothing item for youth in need. Jeans are the perfect item to donate. They can be worn multiple times between washes. Jeans can be dressed up or dressed down, and they provide a sense of normalcy to the person wearing them.
