The RALLYTHON executive board of the University of Vermont’s annual fundraiser reveals the grand total, a record-breaking $140,813.29 raised for the UVM Children’s Hospital by about 800 participants.

This student-led yearlong RALLYTHON culminated in a 12-hour dance marathon, the same length as that of the average nurse’s shift at Vermont’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
