Nearly 2,000 UNC students stood for 24 hours straight at Dance Marathon, a fundraiser for N.C. Children's Hospital, from 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20 until 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21. Each student participating as a dancer raised $100 and student "moralers," who cheered on the dancers, raised $35 each. Students also organize other fundraising activities throughout the year.
