New Hartford student helps UVM meet Rallython goal

Posted

BURLINGTON, VT — Melissa Abraham, of New Hartford, was among over 800 participants on 47 teams, helping the University of Vermont’s 6th annual student-led fundraising event Rallython raise a record-breaking $140,813 for the UVM Children’s Hospital.

Rallython is a student-led yearlong fundraiser which culminates in a 12-hour dance marathon, signifying the average length of a nurse’s shift at Vermont’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Abraham spent the year as a Rallython participant, gaining leadership, teamwork, and non-profit business experience while raising funds and awareness of Vermont’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, which treats and provides life-saving care to sick and injured kids in need. By the conclusion of this year’s dance marathon, Abraham raised enough money to reach the ‘Dancer Goal’ — a distinction given to participants who raised between $100 and $249 over the year.
