30 Hours. 804 Dancers. One University: The Dance Marathon at Rutgers

April 14, 2015

by Linda Stamato/NJ Voices. The students did it again–big, bigger! Record-breaking, just like the last time. And the time before that. The dance marathon, in its 17th year, yielded a whopping $692,046.67 after thirty, long, grueling hours. It ended in triumph.

The campus newspaper, The Targum, shouted the results on Monday morning. Six-hundred students attracted just over 800 dancers, including 89 out of 90 members of a single fraternity (Phi Delta Theta), dancing in honor of a Rutgers junior who is in the hospital receiving chemotherapy, and a group of marathon alumni, Rutgers graduates, who have participated for the last seven years.
