Background:  Now in its third year, Dance Marathon is the largest and most successful student-run philanthropy at Rollins College. In 2007, the inaugural event nearly doubled its fund raising goal and raised more than $35,000 for Children's Miracle Network.  That year, Rollins' Dance Marathon was named the "Best New Dance Marathon" out of 17 launched nationally and was recognized as the most successful first-year dance marathon ever produced in the event's 13-year history.  Each fall, a variety of events are held to support Dance Marathon culminating with a 12-hour marathon, which will be held this year on Saturday, November 14.  To date, Rollins' Dance Marathon has raised more than $70,000 and every penny raised goes directly to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando and the Shand’s Children’s Hospital at the University of Florida.
