The second annual Wichita State University Dance Marathon on Saturday raised more than $30,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Via Christi Health, according to a news release from Via Christi.

This year’s event almost doubled the amount raised last year, Via Christi said

The 12-hour marathon was held at the WSU campus and was a project of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and Alpha Phi Sorority. The event included dancing, music, games, food and other activities.

The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals serve 64 counties in south central and western Kansas. The network provides things for children and their families that are not covered by insurance, such as hotel and travel costs, prescriptions and medical equipment.
