Hundreds of Kansas University students, faculty and staff are expected at the third annual KU Dance Marathon event.
The 12-hour marathon will begin at 5 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center. Other activities include sports tournaments, concerts and other performances. Local bands and businesses are donating time, goods and services.
KU Dance Marathon, a student-run nonprofit, raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and, as of Jan. 1, donates exclusively to KU Pediatrics. KUDM has donated $57,000 over the past two years and hopes to donate $60,000 this year.
