The Cedar Rapids Dance Marathon is gaining momentum and showing no signs of slowing in its fundraising efforts. The organization is raising money for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital through the Children's Miracle Network. 

So far the donation drive has shown a lot of progress since it started fundraising. Emily Grace, the executive director for the Cedar Rapids Dance Marathon, stated the drive is still a bit away from its goal of $280,000. 

The fundraiser is also gaining more people registered to dance and is looking to increase those gains. Grace stated last year they had 121 registered dancers and this year they already have 135, with the goal of 250. "We would absolutely love and need more dancers registered," said Grace.

The event will take place on April 12, starting at 10 a.m. and going to 10 p.m. Check-in will start at 9 a.m. Registration will be held until the event starts.

The fundraiser goal is $28,800. Grace stated, "(Dancers) who are already registered need to continue to fund raise and help us reach our goal." 

Pancheros will be provided for one of the meals. Also, for other activities, zumba instructors will attend and there will be face painting by Lizzy Dvorsky and other activities will be available. To sign up, go to
