UDance Dance Marathon is a student-run philanthropy at the University of Delaware that raises funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, with our local beneficiary, The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation – a non-profit founded in Delaware that provides financial assistance to the families of children who are battling childhood cancer. Since its inception in 2007, UDance has raised $16.5 million to help the 46 children that will be diagnosed with childhood cancer by the end of today.
Make a fundraising page! Any amount helps! $3 could go towards a coffee of a family who has been in the hospital room all night with their crying child who is in agonizing pain from their Chemo treatments.
If you are looking to get more involved, we have a very special event coming up!
