Dance Marathon, for the kids.

Added on by Carolyn Van Houten.

Each year UNC students gather in Fetzer Gym to dance for 24 hours in order to raise money for children's charities.  Since 1999, $3.3 million dollars have been raised.  I have many good friends who have become integral parts of the event and I am so proud of and impressed by them.
