Students at Randolph-Macon College are gearing up to show off their best dance moves
at the 2008 Randolph-Macon College Dance Marathon. The community is invited to participate
in the college’s 7th annual marathon, which will take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
March 15, 2008 in the Brock Center, located at 400 North Center Street on the R-MC
“Excitement is filling the campus as we prepare to make miracles happen at the 7th
annual dance marathon,” says Dance Marathon Executive Director Autumn White. “Soon
all of the hard work will be worth it when we see the smiles on the children's faces.”
Since Randolph-Macon began the dance marathon tradition in 2002, the college has
raised more than $125,000 for Children’s Miracle Network-Richmond’s member hospitals,
VCU Children’s Medical Center and Children’s Hospital.
This year, students will try to dance beyond last year’s fundraising donations of
more than $15,000 with a day of dancing, fun and games to which the entire community
is invited. Families with children are especially encouraged to attend.
This year’s entertainment includes inflatable games for children, line dancing lessons,
a high school step team and food. In addition families whose lives have been touched
by Children’s Miracle Network-Richmond will share their stories with the public.
Please join us for this energetic, inspiring event.
