UNI preparing for Dance Marathon too

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa is known for its annual dance marathon, which raises money for children at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.  The 24-hour marathon will be held Friday and Saturday, February 3-4, 2012.

Meanwhile, the University of Northern Iowa is gearing up for a dance marathon of its own.
This event will be shorter than the U of I version; held for half the time.
It begins February 25th, and runs from 12:00 p.m. to midnight.

400 UNI students are already signed up to take part.

The organizers of UNI's dance marathon have a fundraising goal set at $13,000, which is roughly $1 for each student who attends the college.  Like the U of I version, the money goes to the Children's Miracle Network to help children with illnesses all over eastern Iowa.
