HOW A LITTLE PAINT CAN MAKE A
Florida Paints is a proud supporter of Dance Marathon at the University of Florida. If you don’t know, Dance Marathon is an annual event that lasts for a consecutive 26.2 hours, all aiming to raise awareness and benefit patients of various Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals around the country. The University of Florida specifically sends all their proceeds to Gainesville’s local CMN hospital, Shand’s Children’s Hospital. Students at UF stay awake and on their feet throughout the entire event to show their support and love For The Kids and their families. Last year, UF’s Dance Marathon brought in over$3 million in donations for Shand’s, and they plan on beating that number this year.
Florida Paints previously donated $40 worth of paint to decorate foam blocks. These foam blocks can be purchased with a donation, and placed on a 15-foot pillar. In all, $40 worth of paint turned into around $400,000 in donations. Every dime raised from Dance Marathon goes towards investing in brand new medical equipment, research, and creating a more enjoyable environment for the kids at Shand’s. We are firm believers that a little goes a long way, and we are so excited to be a part of Dance Marathon 2019! If you are interested in hearing more about Dance Marathon or curious in how you can make an impact, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UF will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary of the Dance Marathon event, on Saturday, March 30th, 2019.
