Dancers raise $112,000
Fueled by a record $50,000 anonymous donation, the annual
student-run Dance Marathon, held Feb. 15 and 16 in Memorial Gym,
raised almost $112,000 to benefit the Sarah DuBose Fund.
fund supports the work of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at the
U.Va. Medical Center. It was created by Charles and Sally DuBose,
the parents of Sarah, born 14 weeks prematurely in 1994, but now
a thriving 7-year-old, thanks to the efforts of the NICU.
without the large gift, the dancers would have smashed the previous
fund-raising record of $44,000, set last year.
