Quinnipiac students are preparing for their Spring Break which begins in just over a week. But, before the students depart for their service trips, visits home and vacations they are spending significant amounts of time raising awareness and funds for charity.
The video above was made to publicize QTHON 2014. The event takes place on March 1. The proceeds from this dance marathon will go to support the local Children's Miracle Network and the Connecticut Children's Medical Center.
In addition, there are many young men walking around in the cold with shaved heads. They lost their locks for St. Baldrick's. In what has become an annual tradition, the students solicit pledges for their "sacrifice" and the funds are then contributed to The St. Baldrick's Foundation which provides support specifically to pediatric cancer research.
