UNI Dance Marathon hosted an “Orange Party” from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10 on the Wellness and Recreation Center basketball courts.
The evening’s activities included pie-a-Panther, a bags tournament, jazzercise and stories shared from “miracle families.”
Thursday’s event came at the end of Push Day, during which Dance Marathon members raised as much funds as they could in 24 hours. By the end of the time period, the organization had raised $72,556.44.
UNI Dance Marathon supports the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network. The student-run organization is now in its seventh year, according to its website.
