UMaine Students Look Ahead to Dance Marathon 2021

The last several weeks have been anything routine. As we all continue to adjust to a new normal and start to phase back in some familiarities, college and university students still have many unanswered questions. One of the biggest questions looming is whether classes this Fall will be held in person, on campus, in Orono.

As University of Maine officials turn their attention to ensuring their students, faculty, and staff remain safe and healthy, the students who organize Black BearTHON, UMaine’s Miracle Network Dance Marathon, are focusing their attention to the 2021 event, which is scheduled for the spring ’21 semester. If you know an incoming student who may be interested in helping plan a fundraising event, gain important leadership skills, and meet know friends, all while making a positive impact on the greater Bangor community, please encourage them to be a part of the 2020/2021 Black BearTHON Executive Board.

The mission of Black BearTHON is to dance for a night and give hope for a lifetime. Since 2012, UMaine students have raised more than $343,000 to help the doctors and nurses at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center provide the very best care for local kids. That’s an awful lot of hope, and we’re excited to make even more miracles at the 2021 event – the planning starts this summer!
