Cedar Falls High School students hold mini-dance marathon


Hundreds of Cedar Falls High School students held a mini-dance marathon to raise money for the University of Northern Iowa Dance Marathon and the University of Iowa Children's Hospital Friday.

The high school's mini-dance marathon was being held in conjunction with the Dance Marathon at the University of Northern Iowa, next weekend.

The event Friday had a casino room, and dodge ball tournament, along with the dance marathon.

Organizers say they used several settings to get everyone involved and they are hoping to reach younger students for the cause.

"We try really hard to get the high school kids excited about Dance Marathon because if you can get them excited at an early age, they are going to want to continue helping out with the kids in the hospital, " Executive Director of UNI's Dance Marathon Emily Hanson said.

UNI's Dance Marathon starts on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 12:00 P.M.
