Spring semester is picking up — your schedule is starting to fill up and you’re trying to decide how to spend your time. Blocking off 12 to 24 hours of your time for one thing may seem impossible, but it really doesn’t have to be. Here are a few reasons you should reconsider and sign up for the marathon :)
- Are you a senior that hasn’t experienced Dance Marathon yet? Want to check off an item on the UNC Bucket List?

See it for yourself at number 56! (https://www.dailytarheel.com/article/2017/08/the-new-and-improved-unc-bucket-list)
- Need service hours for a club or to bulk up your resume? Sign up for Dance Marathon and you’ll be able to get 12-24 service hours all while having fun! You’ll even get to have a dance party, pet some hedgehogs, and eat lots of yummy food in the process.
- Sick of eating dining hall food everyday? Don’t want to cook? If you participate in the marathon you’ll get A LOT of free food. I mean A LOT. Coffee, pizza, soda, energy bars, fruit, snacks, mac and cheese, donuts, if you want it, we've probably got it at some point during the marathon. And if you’re worried about allergies or other dietary restrictions, we’ve got you covered. We’ll make sure you have the accommodations you need to be fueled up during the marathon.
- Ever wanted to see the sunrise over the Bell Tower? Sign up for the marathon and experience a sunrise first-hand from the one and only Kenan Stadium. It’ll be like nothing you’ve ever seen before AND it’ll reinvigorate you to get through the second half of the marathon!
of their showcases? Well they’re probably performing at dance marathon and if you sign up, you’ll have the
opportunity to watch so many performances. With a capella groups, jump rope teams, dance groups, and so
much more you won’t be disappointed. UNCDM is the ultimate ticket to see the hottest talent at UNC all in one
Marathon is to make a difference. All of the money you raise will help provide emotional, medical and financial
