NORMAN, Okla. –  From line dancing to black light zumba, more than 2,000 University of Oklahoma students will stand for OU’s Dance Marathon, called Soonerthon, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals event benefiting Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and life skills while raising funds and interacting with children’s hospital patients and families.

The year culminates with a 12-hour long event where the students stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment in celebration of the total amount raised that year.

Students will dance and play games on their feet from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. to raise money for Oklahoma’s children.

This event will be held at Huston Huffman Fitness Center on the OU campus.
