10th Annual Dance Marathon Shatters Fundraising Goal

Dozens of Seattle University students gathered in the Campion Ballroom on Saturday to hold the 10th annual Seattle University Dance Marathon. The event raises money for the Seattle Children’s Hospital Uncompensated Care Fund. Many students enjoyed lively activities, munched on food donated by local restaurants and, of course, danced for 16 straight hours. By the end of the day, they raised $148,210—far surpassing their goal of $125,000.
