Physical therapy sophomore Miranda Smith learns new dance moves at Friday night's marathon.
Dancing for dollars
Children’s Miracle Network dance marathon officials are calling Friday night’s event at the Huston Huffman Center the largest ever.

One of the goals for this year’s marathon was to get 500 students to participate, Klint Neal, event coordinator said.

“We smashed that goal,” he said. “We don’t know the final totals yet, but it’s well over 700.”

All participating students raised $100 or more to participate in volleyball and basketball tournaments, as well as RockBand and dance competitions.

Children’s Miracle Network Research Institute will match each dollar raised, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Oklahoma hospitals that specialize in treating children.
