Dance Marathon raises $1.1 million


The 38th annual Dance Marathon at Northwestern University this weekend raised a record total of $1.1 million for charity.

Most of the money will go to the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation for childhood cancer research this year's primary charity, but 10 percent will go to the Evanston Community Foundation, as it has for the past 15 years.

Last year the event raised more than $1 million for the Children's Heart Foundation and the community foundation.

Nearly 1,300 undergraduate students at NU registered to dance through the 30-hour event this year.
