COLUMBIA — MizzouThon raised $276,664.11 over the weekend for the MU Women's and Children's Hospital.
The organization's yearlong effort to raise funds culminated with the main event on Saturday and Sunday. Participants danced 13.1 hours.
"Tonight, during our 13.1 hour dance marathon, we celebrate all of the miracles we have made this year, and it is quite the party," MizzouThon President Sophie Lustman said.
This video was created using a specialized camera designed to record footage in 360 degrees, creating the effect of virtual reality.
