Staying on their feet to help kids

UIC students will dance for eight hours straight April 6 to raise money for patients at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

UIC hosts its own dance marathon as part of a nationwide event at more than 1,000 high schools and colleges across the country.

Participants will receive pledges to stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Inner Circle, Student Center East. More than 150 people have registered, raising more than $6,000 so far.

“People want to save lives and people want to have fun — here’s a chance for them to do both,” said Arjun Arya, event organizer and sophomore in economics.
