On February 15th and 16th, I will be participating in my fourth and final UNC Dance Marathon. I’ll be saying goodbye to a lot of things in the coming months, but Dance Marathon will be one of the harder farewells – it is one of the few things that I discovered immediately upon my arrival in Chapel Hill that has remained important to me throughout the last 4 years.
In case you need a refresher, all the money raised by UNC-DM throughout the year goes into a fund to support children and families at the NC Children’s Hospital. The money does a lot of great and important things, from paying for gas so parents can visit their kids, to providing free meals while they're in Chapel Hill, to paying an electric bill to ensure that the necessary medical equipment can continue to run at home. We raise money year round, but we stand for 24 hours once a year in solidarity for the kids and their families.
Please consider supporting me in my last hurrah with UNC Dance Marathon! Every little bit of support does something important for our kids and their families.
