Rutgers Dance Marathon raises $692,046 for charity

The dancing inside the Rutgers Athletic Center may have ended, but the celebration has just begun.

On Sunday, 30 hours after the Rutgers University Dance Marathon began, organizers revealed the fundraising totals to the hundreds of students, parents and alumni assembled inside the Rutgers Athletic Center.

All told, the event raised $692,046.67, besting the 2014 total of approximately $622,000.

"Raising a single penny more than what we did last year is more than we all could have hoped for," said Darcy Reynolds, director of finance for the group that organizes the marathon.

Now in its 17 year, the event raises money for the Embrace Kids Foundation, which provides support for the families of children who have been diagnosed with cancer, blood diseases or other serious illnesses.
