What is Dance Marathon?
Dance Marathon is a year long student-led initiative which aims to raise funds and awareness for children in need of specialized pediatric medical care that is otherwise not available to them locally.
At Florida State, our movement culminates into a 30-hour event where over 1,800 students stay awake and on their feet "For The Kids"!
