The University of Iowa’s student-led Dance Marathon raised more than $2.8 million for the UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital in its 26th year.

During the event Feb. 7-8 at the Iowa Memorial Union, student participants unveiled the total of $2,879,755.26, which supports pediatric oncology patients and their families at the hospital and advances cancer research.

In addition to raising money, the event celebrates the lives of survivors and recognizes those lost.

Dance Marathon is the UI’s largest student organization. It has raised more than $30 million since its first event in 1995.
