Spring has now sprung, which means… Dance Marathon is right around the corner!!! Without a doubt, Dance Marathon has been one of the defining events of my time at UCLA. Nothing beats a weekend spent dancing for 26 hours straight with the best of friends all while rallying in support for such an important cause. Although difficult to stay on your feet (and to stay awake!) through the weekend, it’s impossible to lose motivation even for a second when you’re an integral component to taking a stand against Pediatric HIV/AIDS. It’s seemingly such a small act in comparison to the bigger picture, but everyone’s involvement and effort makes a monumental impact. While a commitment to participating in the entire marathon may not be feasible, EVERYONE should sign up to morale!! Honestly, there is nothing better than seeing Belles’ bright, beautiful faces to reenergize you in the wee hours of the night, and when they come bearing popsicles and snacks it’s even better! Seriously, this is an absolute must for any Bruin Bucket List. You will not regret the memories to be made or the amazing influence you’ll have on children and their families affected by HIV/AIDS. DO IT!!!!
