For A Smile. For A Life. For A Cure.

UDance, hosted at The University of Delaware, is a year-long effort dedicated to unifying the community while raising awareness for childhood cancer. It culminates in a 12-hour philanthropic dance marathon every March at The Bob Carpenter Center.


We are The University of Delaware’s largest student-run philanthropy, raising millions of dollars over the last nine years to support medical research and financial assistance for families of children with cancer nationwide. Thousands of students, faculty, and community members dance, sing, and perform to raise money for this great cause.


Musicians, celebrities, and politicians join in every year to take a stand against pediatric cancer, but most importantly, the “B+ Heroes”; children who are currently battling cancer or have shown no evidence of disease in the past, participate to truly remind everyone what UDance is all about.
