St. Norbert College Dance Marathon Exceeds Fundraising Goals

From St. Norbert College, October 28, 2015
by Mike Counter, mike.counter@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

Around 180 students attended the St. Norbert College Dance Marathon on Saturday, Oct. 24, staying on their feet from 9 a.m. to 10:06 p.m. -- a total of 13.1 hours, the hourly equivalent to half of a running marathon's 26.2 miles. By the end of that time, the marathon had raised $40,480.03, well above the organizers' projected goal of $40,000. All proceeds from the event will go to the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

Fourteen families whose children receive care from the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin attended the event. In solidarity, many of the St. Norbert students who attended the marathon decided to shave/cut their hair and donate it to children with cancer.

The St. Norbert College Dance Marathon is an entirely student-run event, planned and managed by a student organization of about 40 members. In three years as an organization, the dance marathon at St. Norbert has raised a total of $96,497.06.
