The Donald L. Tucker Civic Center was filled with emotion and excitement as more than 1,800 student volunteers cheered, hugged and cried when Dance Marathon at Florida State University unveiled the record-breaking amount —$2,152,382 — they raised for charity during the total reveal ceremony Sunday.
Dance Marathon at FSU (DM at FSU) is the fourth-highest fundraising Miracle Network Dance Marathon program in the nation. It is a yearlong fundraising effort “For The Kids,” fueled by students, alumni, faculty, staff and the community. Students volunteer as dancers, raising a minimum of $300 to participate in the main event, where they stay awake and dancing on their feet for 20 hours.
