Director's Message


We are grateful to be serving as the UDance 2019 Co-Executive Directors at the University of Delaware. UDance Dance Marathon is the largest philanthropic organization on campus and we are honored to continue to grow this organization while creating memories and raising awareness for children battling pediatric cancer.

Throughout the years your assistance has allowed us to move one step closer to finding a cure, and for that, we thank you.

UDance and The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation work closely to provide both emotional and financial assistance to those affected by pediatric cancer. We have provided hope, support and memories to a multitude of families across the country. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to grow up.

We like to say that UDance embodies “kids fighting for kids”. Students in the UDance community are determined to create a better world by dancing for those that can’t and remind families that there are people who care for them during this difficult time. In addition to providing emotional and financial support to families, The B+ Foundation funds cutting-edge research and with your assistance, we are truly changing the landscape of pediatric cancer.

Our efforts go far beyond the annual 12-hour dance marathon, as our participants work year-round hosting fundraisers, canning at local businesses, participating in email campaigns, and so much more. UDance understands that cancer does not take a break, so neither do we!

We are humbled to work with such selfless, passionate members and we truly appreciate your commitment to this important cause. Because of you, we are one step closer to a world without pediatric cancer. One day we will dance in celebration, but until then, we dance for a cure.

For a Smile. For a Life. For a Cure.
