Hi! Thank you for visiting my Crowdrise page where I hope to raise money for the 2013 UNC Dance Marathon benefiting patients and families of N.C. Children's Hospital.
This is my third year involved with UNC Dance Marathon, the largest student-run fundraiser in North Carolina. Money raised by The UNC Dance Marathon primarily funds the “For the Kids” Fund. This fund helps with costs not covered by insurance or Medicaid, providing families with necessities-- such as gas cards, phone cards, meals, rent, language translators and more-- that they cannot pay for due to their child’s hospitalization. With these needs taken care of, parents can focus on their child’s health and well-being during an already difficult time.
After a year of hard work and fun events, we celebrate with a 24-hour dance marathon at which over 2,000 students pledge to stand on their feet for 24 hours in a symbolic show of support for the kids. This year's marathon will be held on February 15-16, 2013. The marathon is one of the most amazing, fun, and humbling experiences where the campus comes together in selflessness and motivation. It is definitely the highlight of each of my years at UNC.
I would be so appreciative of any contribution you could make to my fundraising page. Every little bit helps! If you'd like to learn more about the cause I'm so passionate about, visit the official website www.uncmarathon.org, or our YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/uncmarathon. Thank you!
For the Kids,
