UNC Dance Marathon, a 24-hour event sponsored by Carolina For the Kids to raise money for UNC Children's Hospital, took place from 6:30 p.m. Friday to 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Staff Writer Terrance Hudson asked dancers at 5:30 p.m. Saturday how they felt with only one hour of dancing left. Hudson talked to dancers during family hour, when relatives of children who benefit from the fundraising speak to participants.
"It is the strangest mix of emotions and physical and mental stress ... it's hard to put into words. It's really awesome."
"I feel awesome. Family hour made it all worth it I think. My feet hurt, and I'm tired, but with the families and things, it's all worth it in the end."
"I was feeling pretty tired before, but after hearing the stories and seeing the talent show, I'm ready to go."
