BEREA, OHIO — Zach Haviland of Grasonville was among 59 students who participated in Baldwin Wallace University's 18th annual Dance Marathon. As the largest philanthropy organization on campus, Dance Marathon brings together the community, students and sponsors. The 12-hour marathon consists of performers, dancing and HIV/AIDS education. This year's marathon raised over $16,000 for the cause.
Haviland, a graduate of Kent Island High School majoring in physics, danced from noon to midnight, raising money and awareness in the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS through Up 4 the Fight, a collegiate fundraising program.
All proceeds went to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, which seeks to educate and reduce the transmission and cases of pediatric AIDS worldwide.
