Held on February 24 at the Student Recreation Center, Dance Marathon 2012 raised $15,000 for the Guardian Scholars and was a smashing success, far exceeding the original goal of raising $10,000. Co-sponsored by the UCR Student Alumni Association and Golden Key International Honour Society, Riverside, the event was planned and executed in less than six months, with over 200 attendees.

Top fundraising group: Go-Go-Guardian Scholars
