TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – They were movin’ and groovin’ for a good cause!
Many folks were taking part in Dance Marathon Saturday to support Riley Hospital for Children.
The event went from noon and wrapped up at midnight, with non-stop dancing.
It took place at the Student Recreation Center at Indiana State University.
The dancers say every dollar makes a difference! One organizer, Courtney Johnson explained, “We all do this for the kids whether the child is in our personal family, your best friend, your cousin, your aunt, your uncle, your mom. We all know someone or have come in contact with a person that has been treated at Riley."
