College Dance Marathons Break Records to Million-Dollar Beats
Who knew conquering the dance floor could rake in so much money? College students from all over the country broke fund-raising records with dance marathons this year. Students generated almost $500,000 at Florida State University, $1-million at Northwestern University, and nearly $10-million at Penn State University.
Organizers cannot say what exactly made their marathons so appealing this year, but they agree that people wanted to support the children’s health charities and other causes that benefited from the events.
