As the spring semester is ready to begin, the Unlimited Dance Marathon fundraising efforts have ramped up as well. This year's event, held March 28 from 12 p.m.-12 a.m., in the Sports Pavilion, will look to make just as big of an impact as it did in 2014. All donations and proceeds go directly towards the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.
Last year, Gopher Athletics assisted with the Unlimited Dance Marathon and raised nearly $29,000 in cash donations. Prior to Gopher Athletics involvement, Unlimited raised $13,800 in 2012-13 combined. With gift-in-kinds and cash donations, Unlimited and Gopher Athletics raised nearly $84,000 in 2014.
Haven't heard of the Unlimited Dance Marathon? It's a year-long fundraising effort culminating in a 12-hour Dance Marathon. No sleeping, no sitting, just dancing. We also raise emotional, financial support and awareness for children and their families treated at the Masonic Children's Hospital.
