Grins helps fuel some serious dancers

Could you stay on your feet dancing for 24 hours straight? More than 2,000 students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill did just that this past weekend. Their efforts raised $483,210.36 for N.C. Children’s Hospital.

It was the 2012 UNC Dance Marathon. Dancers raise pledges, and then must stay on their feet dancing for 24 hours straight–no sitting down, no leaning on the wall. In addition to the annual fundraising event, this group also organizes volunteer efforts at the hospital throughout the year.

Since these students work so hard to bring grins to kids who need them, we figured they definitely needed some of our Grins to help fuel their 24-hour dance party. 

Great job, dancers. We’re glad to see The Official Beverage of Happy People helped move some happy feet!

And to all our Chapel Hill fans, if you need to stock up on Grins, head to Ken’s Quickie Mart, in University Square on Franklin Street.
