RockeTHON 2014: Students ready to dance to help area kids

RockeTHON, formerly known as Dance Marathon, is The University of Toledo’s largest student-run philanthropy event. The yearlong fundraiser culminates in a 13-hour event where participants stay on their feet by dancing, playing games, participating in themed contests, and getting to know the families they are supporting.

RockeTHON will be held Saturday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. throughout the Student Union, with the stage and main action taking place in the auditorium.

This year’s goal is to have more than 1,000 students participate and to raise $113,000.

About 10 families are planning on sharing their personal stories with RockeTHON participants.

Dance Marathon is a national event, taking place at more than 100 college campuses across the country. Since 2001, RockeTHON has raised more than $500,000 for Mercy Children’s Hospital, bringing a brighter future to area children.
