Carolina For the Kids hosted its annual Dance Marathon on Friday and Saturday, following an 18-year tradition. The event raised $420,062.95.
Sophomore Ryan Carp, a member of the publicity committee, allowed The Daily Tar Heel to follow him throughout the 24-hour period and see what the inside of the marathon was really like.
An hour after the marathon began, there was a line of people waiting to check in inside Fetzer Hall, and loud music was already blasting from the dance floor. In the main gym there was a huge stage set up with flashing lights and the UNC v. Butler men’s basketball game airing.
