CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The University of Northern Iowa will host their fourth annual Dance Marathon from noon to midnight on Saturday, March 7 in the Maucker Union.

Nationwide, Dance Marathon involved college and high school students at more than 250 schools. Money raised goes to the Children's Miracle Network Hospital and the U of I Children's Hospital. In 2014, DMs raised more than $8 million.

This year, UNI hopes to raised $225,000. The university has exceeded their fundraising goal the last three years. Participants will dance and stay on their feet for the whole event, known as 'standing for those who can't.' Other activities will also be held in breakout rooms.
