NEWARK, Del. -- The University of Delaware men's soccer program was present to offer support for the UDance event on March 21 to raise funds for Pediatric Medical Research. The event was an overwhelming success with $112,930 raised mainly for two organizations, the Andrew McDonough B+ foundation and Elizabeth Glaser's Pediatric AIDS Foundation. The Andrew McDonough Foundation provides financial relief to families with critically ill children, and funding for research into curing pediatric cancers. The Glaser Foundation focuses on AIDS infection eradication in children through research, education and treatment programs.

"Events such as those organized by UDance are close to our hearts since our players and coaches work so often with young athletes," said head coach Ian Hennessy. "We feel obliged to help with events like those organized by UDance anytime that we have the opportunity."

The men's soccer program is an annual supporter of the Prevent Child Abuse Delaware (PCAD). The fourth annual 5K run at Rockford Park will take place on Wed., June 9 at 6:30 p.m. For additional information, please visit www.pcadelaware.org.
