The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s Dancer Diaries blog recently featured Holy Cross Dance Marathon’s (HCDM) fall-kick off awareness event launching the fundraising period for the annual 12-hour dance marathon, which will be held January 25-26, 2014. HCDM members labeled stickers with a number from 1 to 900 to represent the 900 children that are born with HIV every day, and distributed these stickers to passing students to wear to raise campus-wide awareness of pediatric HIV and AIDS.
Sydney Van Horn, the foundation’s developing coordinator and blog writer, describes students’ reaction to the news: “Some students cheered. Some quizzed me on next steps. Others were awestruck. Last year they had a 1000 A DAY event; this year was the 900 A DAY event. And on same day they learned that we were progressing even further in getting women, children, and families the care and treatment they need and deserve.”
