Dancing Freddie hits the pavement again for Telethon

PADUCAH, KY – He is a Telethon of Stars tradition. For 17 years, Freddie Hicks has danced for donations outside Paducah’s Hannan Plaza Kroger. Dancing Freddie is at it again this year.

“I’ve danced all my life. It’s the most fun way I know to raise money for the Telethon,” Freddie said.

In 2001, Freddie danced for the first time.

“I didn’t think I’d ever do it again,” Freddie said.

The Telethon is a special cause for him. Last year, he raised more than $10,000.

“I’m blessed. I’m a two time cancer survivor,” Freddie explained. “Every year that I’m able to come back and do this is just been another year that I’ve been blessed with life.”

Freddie is proud to know the money he raises goes to the Easter Seals of West Kentucky.

“I go over there and I see where this, how this money is put to work,” he said. “I’ve seen people who were in wheelchairs who are now walking. I’ve seen children who took speech therapy who no longer need speech therapy. I’ve seen miracles happen because of the Telethon.”
