Amanda Flores and Danielle Alfano of Verona were among the University of Delaware students who participated in a 12-hour dance marathon to provide financial assistance to families of children battling pediatric cancer and fund cancer research studies.
UDance is the university’s largest student-run philanthropy benefiting the Wilmington, Del.-based Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation. In March, the organization celebrated a year’s worth of fundraising during its 11th annual dance marathon. UDance is the fifth largest college dance marathon in the nation, with over 2,000 student participants. In the event and other activities throughout the academic year, students raised more than $1.8 million.
Flores graduated Verona High School with the class of 2015, while Alfano was a 2016 graduate.
