TO THE EDITOR:
Seven years ago, a group of dedicated students at this university started an organization to unite the entire campus and surrounding community.
Now as the largest student-run fund-raiser on campus, the UNC Dance Marathon has become a strong Carolina tradition.
Each year, hundreds of students pledge to stand on their feet for 24 hours as a symbolic gesture of support for the families and children of the N.C. Children's Hospital.
Each year, hundreds of N.C. families are helped by the money raised by these students.
