ORONO – The University of Maine is holding the fourth annual 12-hour Bearfest Dance Marathon on Saturday, March 21 at the New Balance Student Recreation Center.

Since 2012, the event has raised more than $130,000 to help area hospitals support local children. This year, UMaine student organizers want to make the event the largest community fundraiser on campus. Organizers hope to raise $75,000 for EMHS Foundation Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.
