Dance Marathon: 32 Hours For the Kids

In Career on April 16, 2013 at 1:01 pm

I feel incredibly proud to be part of this year’s marathon.  Though I helped run social media throughout the school year, leading up to and during the event, I was just a small part in the grand scheme.

Dance Marathon volunteers hold up the 2013 total: $503,641.77!

Dance Marathon, the largest student-run philanthropy in New Jersey, raises money for the Embrace Kids Foundation, an organization supporting the families of children with cancer and blood disorders. Rutgers University organizations create teams, and University students spend the year fundraising for their team.  This year we raised over $500,000 for the Foundation and, more importantly, the families it supports.

As a Dance Marathon social media captain, I spent 32 hours uploading pictures and updates along with the rest of the media team.  I was lucky, really.  The media room is a conference room on the second floor of the gym well away from the noise.  It also has a healthy supply of chairs and junk food for the team.

So, not only was I able to spend time with my friends dancing on the main floor, but I could retire to the media room to recharge my batteries (p.s. I love a good pun!).
