UGA Miracle, Florida Dance Marathon programs competing in fundraising

UGA students will aim for two victories against the University of Florida this weekend. As the football teams go head to head, UGA Miracle will compete against Florida’s Dance Marathon program in a rivalry fundraising challenge.

Throughout the week, UGA Miracle will rally the Bulldog Nation to raise funds for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, while Florida does the same for its local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. The official count begins Oct. 29 and the winner will be announced Nov. 2.
