Camp Good Days Logo

Students at St. John Fisher College are likely still weary from their weekend, and many have new 'doos.'

Beginning Friday night, hundreds danced for 24 hours in the 32nd annual Teddi Dance for Love to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times.

The students were joined by faculty, staff and camp volunteers and staff.

When it was over Saturday they had raised $63,614.

Another component this year? Hair donations. 19-hundred inches for the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign.

Camp Good Days founder Gary Mervis congratulated the dancers saying it would be one of their best memories at school.

Camp Good Days and Special Times, Inc. was founded more than 30 years ago by Gary Mervis to provide a residential camping program for his daughter, Teddi Mervis, and 62 other children with cancer.
