Stuff About Me:

On 15th February, I will be taking part in a 24-hour dance marathon in support of UNC Children's Hospital. Now you all know how much I love dancing, but 24-hours will be a struggle, even for me! I have pledged to raise $150 and take a physical stand by dancing for 24hours for the kids.

UNC Dance Marathon: We fund what medical insurance cannot for patients and their families at N.C. Children's Hospital. We believe that our community can make a difference by helping remove the burdens associated with hospitalization, such as travel expenses, food and electricity for medical equipment. By removing these burdens and providing the funding for research and additional pediatric programs we can all help provide the fullest possible care to children.

In the simplest terms, The UNC Dance Marathon is a student-run nonprofit organization at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We are the largest student fundraiser on campus and we work year round to raise money to benefit the patients and families of N.C. Children’s Hospital. Our fundraising efforts culminate in a 24-hour celebration where hundreds of UNC students show their support for the patients and families by standing on their feet for the entire event. 

Our dream and a vision to positively impact lives of patients and families have enabled us to support the hospital’s initiatives, ranging from paying bills through the For the Kids Fund to decreasing hospital acquired infection rates through the Center for Clinical Excellence. This impact, whether small or large, can make a world of difference in a child’s experience at N.C. Children’s Hospital.
