+University of Iowa Dance Marathon - Event Registration and Donation
Hey guys. My name is Tony Costella, and I’m a freshman at the University of Iowa. I’m collecting donations through a group/event called Dance Marathon. We collect donations that go to supporting the kids suffering from cancer and their families at the oncology ward of the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. Many of us have known family and friends who have suffered from the various kinds of cancer, myself being no exception. That’s why I’m spreading my donation link to try and gather as much money as I can in donations to the Children’s Hospital at my university.Since 1995, Dance Marathon at the University of Iowa has raised over 14.5 million dollars, with over 1.8 million of that being just last year alone. More and more money is raised per year for this incredible cause, and I’m hoping to see this year be no different in that respect.The group raises money and has smaller events through until February, where the big event takes place: a literal 24-hour dance marathon, an insanely fun event where all who raised money have a dance for 24 hours, no sleep, and with as little caffeine as possible.Like I said though, the absolute most important part is getting the donations. Every single dollar goes to one of the best causes out there. Dance Marathon is, truly, for the kids, and to help support them in the fight that takes away too many, too early.Thank you all for reading this post. I hope to see at least some donations come out of this. Feel free to spread the word, reblog this post, share it elsewhere, and donate to an amazing cause.Thank you.
