Dance Marathon

Dance Marathon

In February 1999 a group of around seventy-five UNC—Chapel Hill students danced for twenty-four hours to raise money for the North Carolina Children's Hospital. The Dance Marathon, inspired by a long-running student fund-raiser at Penn State, became an annual tradition. The number of student participants steadily increased, as did the amount of money raised. In 2014 the name of the program was officially changed to "Carolina for the Kids" and began to include other fund-raising activities.
