Students at the University of Delaware raised a staggering $1,890,337 at the UDance for the B+ Foundation last weekend – the most ever in the fundraiser’s history. Excitement was at a fever pitch all night long. “At no point in all 12 hours of the dance marathon did the energy drop below 100%,” exclaimed senior Merissa Muller, one of the UDance organizers.
The team of some 100 planners and volunteers were busy all night long to make sure everything went smoothly for the thousands of dancer participants. But they took great joy in seeing the smiles on each ‘Dancer,’ ‘Moraler,’ parent and child’s faces, “which made our hearts glow,” said Muller. “This marathon was the single most selfless, compassionate and memorable event I could have had the honor to witness first hand.”
