DM 2009 to benefit Project Kindle

    Project Kindle, a nonprofit that serves and educates children and families affected by HIV/AIDS, will be the main beneficiary for the 2009 Dance Marathon, DM announced Wednesday.

    Project Kindle offers a free summer camp for children living with HIV/AIDS, a scholarship fund for young patients, and two HIV educational programs which partner with schools.

    The Evanston Community Foundation will be DM’s secondary beneficiary for the twelfth consecutive year. At the last Dance Marathon, more than 750 students danced for 30 consecutive hours, ultimately raising $659,711 for Bear Necessities and the Evanston Community Foundation. Next year’s event will take place from March 6-8, 2009.
