Students walking through Speaker’s Circle Tuesday morning were in for a treat: free hot chocolate and a spontaneous dance party.
Dance Marathon, a philanthropy that fundraiser for the MU Children’s Hospital, distributed hot chocolate from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. They also set up a chalkboard for dancers to write why they participate.
Jessica Miller, an MU student and education major, wrote “because of my future classroom.” She was enthusiastic about the morning’s event.
“We’re raising awareness for Dance Marathon and getting people to sign up,” she said. “We’re recruiting some awesome dancers”
Miller credits the event’s success to the group’s energy.
“We’re dancing a lot and I think people are being drawn in and wanting to do this awesome thing.”
