A dedication ceremony for the completed renovations of the Dance Marathon Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Research Laboratories will take place today at 11 a.m.

The ceremony is in honor of the UI Dance Marathon’s $1 million pledge to the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. UI President Sally Mason, along with leaders of UI Dance Marathon, will be joined by members from UI Health Care and the UI Children’s Hospital and UI Foundation to celebrate the dedication.

The UI Dance Marathon’s pledge is part of a $750,000, two-year pledge to aid renovations of laboratory space. The organization also donated $250,000 to establish a special research fund.

Both donations have been to support research for pediatric cancer and blood disorders.
