Dance Marathon starts today! This year's theme is "Kickin' It Old Skool," which pays homage to the trends of the 1990's. Here are a few words about the event from Amy Chen, a member of Dance Marathon's Outreach Committee: "Dance Marathon is a 12 hour event being held on Friday April 2nd 7pm to Saturday April 3rd 7am. All the proceeds go to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation to help fund research to find a cure for Pediatric AIDS. In only the four years Dance Marathon has been at Cal, it has helped raised $80,000 for the foundation and we hope to continue the movement this year. It will be a night full of food, performances, activities, and prizes." Although registration has already ended, pull out your wallets (as well as your baby doll dresses, scrunchies, and fanny packs) to support the cause -- participants can fund-raise up until the night of the event (tonight). What are you waiting for? Get movin'!
