Welcome to UDance
UDance is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for Childhood Cancer. This effort culminates in a 12-hour dance marathon every spring.
In our efforts to support the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, the University of Delaware UDance Marathon strives to instill hope in the lives of those affected by childhood cancer. We encourage unity, raise funds and spread awareness while inspiring all to Live Like Andrew!
UDance, hosted at the University of Delaware, is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer. This effort culminates into a 12-hour philanthropic dance marathon every spring. It's the university's largest student-run philanthropy and has raised over $1.4 million in the last two years. This past year alone we raised over $850,000. These donations have benefited The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, which supports medical research for families of critically ill children across the country.
As UDance continues to grow, we would love to have you become a part of this fight! Please visit www.UDanceDelaware.org and click on "Sign Up Today" to create a team to begin facilitating online donations and/or donate to an existing team.
UDance benefits The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation.
The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation (www.BePositive.org) was born out of tragedy after athlete and 'A' student Andrew McDonough passed away from complications of leukemia on July 14, 2007, at age 14. Andrew's blood type and the family's motto was, and continues to be, "B+"… "Be Positive". The overall goal of The B+ Foundation is to “Do Good." With your help, they will continue to achieve their primary objectives:
- Fund research to find cures for childhood cancers and advancements in chemotherapy In 2009, The Foundation awarded a $250,000 grant and they will soon award another $250,000 research grant.
- Provide assistance for families of children with cancer nationwide in their greatest time of need. To date, The B+ Foundation has financially assisted 740 families in 43 states with over $560,000 in assistance.
