The theme for this year’s dance marathon was “Wild About Finding A Cure.”

UDance began at 9 a.m. and ended at 9 p.m., with the announcement of the amount that UD students and the community have raised over the past year.

Participants were able to donate hair to cancer patients and dance along to a silent disco, and had the chance to interact with B+ Heroes and enjoy many performances on stage.

Parents also took the stage to testimonials that makes the reason why the dance marathon is held evident,” a UDance representative said.
