On April 8-9th, I will be participating in the UCLA Dance Marathon to raise funds for the Pediatric AIDS Coalition. I will dance for 26 hours to raise awareness and funds for education and treatment for children with AIDS around the world. Prior to the event, I am fundraising a minimum of 260 dollars towards the cause. UCLA’s PAC has teamed up with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) which for 25 years has worked to raise funds and awareness to help combat AIDS worldwide. EGPAF is the primary beneficiary of Dance Marathon (70%) followed by Project Kindle (19%), UCLA AIDS Institute (10%), and UCLA PAC (1%). 
Anything helps! Please help me in taking a stand against pediatric AIDS and donate on my behalf by following the link below!
