Northwestern University 30-hour Dance Marathon kicks off Friday

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Just this weekend alone, almost 16 million kids will go hungry and 300 thousand of them are in the Chicago area.

Northwestern University students are doing something about that alarming statistic. This weekend, they are hosting their 30 hour dance marathon kicking off Friday. Over 14,000 students will dance the night, and the day away, to raise money for Blessings in a Backpack and the Evanston Community Foundation.
