- Dance Marathon at UVA
Each year UVa students take on the challenge to stay on their feet for 15 consecutive hours for Dance Marathon – an event that raises money to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network at the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital. Since its inception, our event has raised over $500,000 for the Hospital. In addition to dancing the night away with the line dance, the rave and the greek dance off - students participate in a variety of fun activities, enjoy a wide range of entertainment group, great food, and special events. The student participants experience physical and mental challenges during the event, serving as a reminder of the obstacles children treated at the UVA Children’s Hospital. The highlight of the event is when the Miracle Families visit, play and share their stories during Family hours. Their stories of success are what keep the dancers motivated and remind everyone that they are making a difference in a child’s life.

- Dream Corps International
Dream Corps at U.Va. is part of Dream Corps International. Our mission is to promote education equity in China through quality resources and sustained participation. We work to improve the learning and developing environment for underprivileged children in China and to foster their dreams, so that their lives are not held hostage to existing economic, educational, and technological divides. We envision that one day, as many children in China as possible will be able to realize their dreams for a meaningful future. At the same time, privileged youths will develop a greater sense of social responsibility by engaging in constructive activities that bring them closer to their peers in rural China. Dream Corps employs the passion of Chinese students going to universities in the U.S. and international students of Chinese descent to their home country, to organize volunteer corps to establish libraries in rural schools or communities in China.
