More than 60 students took part in PrinceTHON, a seven-hour dance marathon May 6 at the Frist Campus Center that raised more than $8,000 for the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation in Washington, D.C. Participants took breaks each hour but were asked to “stay the whole time, and stay on foot” as they danced to music provided by student DJs.

PrinceTHON was inspired by similar events at other universities, said Yeri Lee ’15, who added: “Dance marathons are a lot of fun — you have to be fit for an actual charity run!”
