The University of Iowa Dance Marathon creates special projects to provide emotional and financial support to families treated by the Children's Hospital of Iowa at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, with an emphasis on the Division of Hematology/Oncology. The efforts of more than 1,000 UI students culminate each February as dancers and sponsored families come together to dance for 24 hours in celebration of the children and to reveal the results of fundraising efforts.
