Lamar University Dance Marathon hosted its first fall event, Minithon, Nov. 1, in the Setzer Student Ballroom, in preparation for its main event in Spring 2019, on April 5, from 7 p.m. to midnight.

Dance Marathon is a non-profit organization that fundraises for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the nation, since 1991. Over 80 participants were provided with free Chick-Fil-A, snacks and drinks, at the event. The Dance Marathon committee provided dance instructions on stage while the attendees followed along, on the dance floor.

There were a variety of line dance songs to keep the participants’ hips moving throughout the night.
