Northwestern University Students Dance for 30 Hours in Supports of HIV/AIDS Organization
More than 900 Northwestern University students will dance for 30 hours for AIDS organization Project Kindle starting Friday March 6. Project Kindle is a national organization committed to providing support for children, parents and families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and working to educate the general public about the disease. One of their main avenues of support is Camp Kindle, two week-long, stigma-free camp sessions. Dance Marathon is the culmination of a year-long effort by student organizers and dancers to raise money for the beneficiary as well as help the organization expand their reach. In its year working with DM, Project Kindle has been able to better serve their more than 40 Chicago-area families through volunteer events and education opportunities. Project Kindle is hoping to use DM's donation to buy a permanent campsite where it can support its families year-round. It is the efforts of more than 1,000 college students that makes this all a reality. For more information or to donate, please visit www.nudm.org.
