Grins helps fuel some serious dancersPosted: February 20, 2012
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.
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.
