Be Positive: College Kids Dance To Fight Childhood Cancer
NOVAdance takes place at Villanova University to help support childhood cancer & The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation. This foundation honors the memory of Andrew, a 14-year-old who fought the disease for 167 days and went to Heaven on July 14, 2007. Throughout Andrew’s illness, he inspired thousands of friends and families. His blood type was B+, which became his family’s motto throughout the fight, to “Be Positive.” B+ reflected how Andrew lived his life and how he inspired others to do the same.
NOVAdance was created out of his inspiration and to honor his memory. NOVAdance is a yearlong fundraising effort culminating in a twelve-hour dance marathon each Spring at Villanova University in Pennsylvania. It was started in 2014, raising over $68,000 for cancer research and helping families affected by cancer. This year’s event is extra special because children affected by cancer will be at the ceremony! These college kids with huge hearts are ‘B-ing Positive’ and helping so many deserving families!
