LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- University of Kentucky students danced their way to raising over a million dollars this weekend.
It was all part of the annual DanceBlue event, a 24-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon that supports pediatric cancer care and research at the UK Children's Hospital.
Along with the help of a surprise donor, Joy R. Wills, from Egypt, Kentucky, who donated $500,000 the final amount raised came to over 1.6 millions dollars.
Wills passed away this past August and was a long time supporter of DanceBlue.
The marathon was recently named one of the top ten biggest college fundraisers. From 2006-2013, DanceBlue has raised $5,148,811.
It ended at 8 p.m. tonight.
