Dance marathon hosts fund-raising events

Dance marathon hosts fund-raising events The University of South Dakota's Dance Marathon is rocking its way through the semester to meet its $50,000 goal.

Dance Marathon is the largest student fund-raising event on USD's campus and all proceeds go to the Children's Miracle Network. Several upcoming fund-raising events will contribute to this year's success.

Dance Marathon will host "Parent's Night Out" on Feb. 18 from 6 to 10 p.m. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Everyone is welcome to stop by with their children for a fun night out. What is the cost? You decide! If interested, please email tlscherr@usd.edu.�

On Feb. 23, starting at 8 a.m., the executive council will get on the roof of the Coyote Student Center for the annual "Roof Sit." Members will not come down until $1,258.88 is raised.

Dance Marathon's recent fund-raising event "Calling for Kids" was a success. Over the two days it was held in the Coyote Student Center, $2,251 was raised. Many professors, faculty, and staff called on family and friends to raise this money. They were allowed out of "jail" after the money was raised.�

The actual dance marathon is April 2-3, which will include dancing, fun, and games. For more information, please go to www.usd.edu/dancemarathon.
