Dancing for a cause:

Another year of XU Dance Marathon

By Jenny Mendoza
On February 14, 2012

Saturday in the O'Connor Sports Center the annual XU

Dance Marathon (XUDM) took place. XUDM is an annual fundraiser for Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

(CCHMC).

Xavier students raise money throughout the year and then come together to celebrate Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

On the day of the event, participants celebrate their own health, remember the children who currently hospitalized and hear stories from children who have successfully recovered thanks to CCHMC.

This year there were 11 Champion Families from CCHMC, which is twice as many as last year. While the fundraising

lasts all year long for the marathon, the actual event was six hours of dancing, food and fun with more than 200 people coming out to XUDM.

Over $1,000 in prizes were given out throughout the day, in

addition to all the free food and activities. Prizes were awarded for trivia questions, a half-court shot contest,

a dance contest and a raffle where numbers were drawn every 20 minutes. Prizes included Netflix subscriptions,

King's Island tickets, Cincinnati Zoo and Newport Aquarium passes, Reds gear and hundreds of dollars to restaurants

and stores.
