LSU students literally dancing the night away
BATON ROUGE - Hundreds of LSU students won't be sleeping until later this weekend, since they are spending the 26.2 hours standing and dancing at the John M. Parker Coliseum.
The group is raising money for Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital in an annual event, Dance Marathon. The event is 26.2 hours for the mileage of a full marathon, 26.2 miles. Students raise money and commit to standing to show support for the children who need special care.
The students hope to raise $154,000 or more this year. To read more and to donate, click HERE.
Organizers will reveal how much they raised Saturday evening.
