Students at The University of Toledo will be dancing the day and night away during RockeTHON Saturday, April 7, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in Savage Arena.

RockeTHON is a marathon where more than 1,000 students dance to raise funds for children and families at Mercy Children’s Hospital. It’s all “for the kids,” according to the event’s slogan.

During the marathon, there will be a variety of activities, ranging from mini-competitions to inflatable games. Entertainment involves live bands, dance routines, and showcases from student organizations.

During the last hour of the event, families from Children’s’ Miracle Network will share their success stories and how RockeTHON has made a positive impact on their lives.

RockeTHON has raised more than $1 million — all donated to the hospital. This year’s goal is to raise $160,000.
