For this year’s Wake ‘N Shake, a 12-hour dance marathon organized by Wake Forest students, participants will join in from places across the country instead of gathering on campus.
They will all be raising money for the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund.
After checking in with dance marathon organizers at other universities facing similar challenges, consulting with experts on technology options and figuring out how to effectively fundraise online, Wake ‘N Shake 2020 leaders are putting on a virtual event April 4 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. that will center on social media engagement with the final hour streamed live.
Wake ‘N Shake leaders agreed on this year’s format after considering several options.They planned the event while they were also making the shift to virtual classes in mid-March because of the global pandemic.
