The Cedar Rapids Dance Marathon was once again a success. Kirkwood Community College hosted the event April 12, at the Rec Center on the main campus.

According to the Cedar Rapids Dance Marathon Facebook page, $26, 064.04 was raised this year to help support pediatric patients who are treated at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital. 

Approximately 150 students from Kirkwood, Coe College and Mount Mercy University participated in the event this year. They danced, nonstop, from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. Joining students were members of 19 local families who have had children treated at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.
