University of Virginia students showed off their best moves to help kids with cancer.
Saturday was the 14th-annual Dance Marathon at the university's Memorial Gym, a fundraiser for the UVa. Children's Hospital and the Children's Miracle Network.
More than 300 students have been collecting money all year to help kids in their fight with cancer, and their efforts have paid off. This year's marathon raised $35,000.
"I think children are the most important part of the community," said Meredith Loretta, chair of the event. "I think they need the most help from us. And it's just really great as a university community to take time on our weekend and give back to the community."
The family day featured moonbounces, bull riding, games and dance performances. The marathon made a move to Boylan Heights on the Corner later in the afternoon for more dancing and live music.
