UNC students ready to dance for charity
CHAPEL HILL (WTVD) -- More than 1,000 University of North Carolina Chapel-Hill students are ready to dance around the clock for charity.
The annual largest student-led fundraiser, a dance marathon, kicks off Friday night. The event has raised more than $2 million since the first was held 12 years ago.
About 1,600 students will try to stay awake and on their feet for 24 hours to raise money for the North Carolina Children's Hospital.
Money raised helps patients and families pay medical costs not covered by insurance or Medicaid. That includes phone cards to help families stay informed about a child's treatment, parking and meal vouchers, and holiday dinners for families who can't afford them.
