Dance for Inspiration

Dance Marathon, an annual 12-hour dance–fundraiser, is one of the most popular student events on the Danforth Campus. (Jerry Naunheim Jr.)

More than 1,000 students from Washington University and other local colleges and high schools got into the groove during the annual 12-hour Dance Marathon, held in the Field House of the Athletic Complex during fall semester. These energetic students helped raise more than $166,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network, bringing the event’s 12-year fundraising total to more than $1 million. All of the money goes to assist patients at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center.
