Many of you dance for, and contribute to, the annual Rutgers Dance Marathon, meant to raise funds for the families of children with cancer. In a shocking story, Cameron Foster, Alex Fabugais-Inaba, Shannon McIntyre and Jorge Delgado of the Rutgers investigative reporting team, led by Juan Gonzalez, discovered that only about a quarter of these funds are donated to families — while the largest financial contributions go to cancer research, to an endowed chair and to staff salaries and overhead.  Please explore these articles:

Photojournalism student Mannal Babar visited a wildly popular international food market in Queens, New York, and documented life there, while other students in Nat Clymer’s photojournalism class chronicled the lives of the Ramapough Lenape, in Mahwah.
