TO THE EDITOR:
I am pleased to lend my support to the UNC Dance Marathon and to encourage Carolina students to get involved in this worthy cause. The Feb. 23-24 fundraiser directly benefits the families of the children who received care in the N.C. Children's Hospital.
The annual marathon, now in its third year, is building on a tradition of success. Last year's event raised more than $70,000. With your support, organizers expect an even bigger and better event this year. The marathon also provides an excellent opportunity for students to meet and form relationships with the families and children who benefit from their efforts.
More than 400 students will be on their feet for 24 hours to show their support for the families and the hospital. To those who have already committed to dance, thank you. For other members of the University community, it's not too late to get involved. For more information on how to get involved, visit www.uncmarathon.org or e-mail email@example.com.
Please consider kicking up your heels for a good cause this weekend.
