ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Teddi Committee held a Very Berry Brunch at St. John Fisher University on Friday to kick off the ‘Teddi Dance for Love’ week.

This marks the 42nd annual Teddi Dance for Love event, which is one of Fisher’s honored traditions. The dance event includes a 24-hour dance-a-thon where funds are raised for Camp Good Days and Special Times to help children with cancer.

Gary Mervis, the founder of Camp Good Days and Special Times said, “Childhood cancer is no longer whispered about and these kids don’t have to live in secret isolated lives. That and people are more acknowledging that you have been treated for cancer and can still be a viable and productive member of the community.”

During the brunch, organizers spoke about the importance of the fundraiser. The speakers included Fisher’s president Dr. Gerard J. Rooney, Camp Good Days and Special Times founder Gary Mervis, and Monroe County Executive and Teddi Dance honorary chair Adam Bello.
