Hey everyone!

Many sorrys about making a topic not about the game, as it will surely lower the number of people who click on this topic, BUT since this site is about the University of Michigan, I just wanted to let everyone know that Dance Marathon, the university's largest student organization (as well as the largest non-profit in the state of Michigan), raised $516,707.13 towards children's rehabilitation at Motts and Beaumont Hospitals!  A huge thank you to any MgoBlogger who donated, and an even bigger congratulations to any MgoBloggers who stood for the 30 hours this weekend!  In Lloyd Carr's words at the end of the marathon "THIS is Michigan. YOU are Champions!"  By the way watching us beat Syracuse with 700 other people was the greatest.

Congrats, that's a great effort.  As a community member I appreciate the charity work on behalf of kids, and as a umich administratior I appreciate how often I hear that Dance Marathon is a rewarding part of someone's undergrad experience.
