In early October, roughly 1,000 volunteers, including the Dartmouth women’s softball team and approximately 70 other Dartmouth students, spent several days with the crew of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” constructing a new 4,250 square foot home for the Marshall family of Lyme, N.H.
The ABC episode aired on Sunday.
Cameron Marshall, who is 10 years old, was diagnosed three years ago with leukemia, and the family subsequently organized the “Be Positive” initiative to raise money for the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth, which to date has raised over $100,000. CHaD was featured prominently in the ABC episode.
The new house was constructed in eight days, and was supported by donations from over 500 local businesses, in addition to numerous community volunteers.
