First Chicago Dance Marathon to support hospital

Have you ever been recapping an evening on the town, and told someone that you “danced all night”?

To actually do such a thing is pretty difficult and painful — just ask any Northwestern University student who’s participated in the school’s annual 30-hour Dance Marathon event. But it’s pain for a purpose, as events like these are typically done to raise money for charity. The first-ever Chicago Dance Marathon on March 6 will be no different: the 13.1-hour event (stop scoffing, Wildcat alums) at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place will help raise funds for Children’s Memorial Hospital.
