BSU students are dancing the night to raise money for St. Luke's Children's hospital. The Boise State Dance Marathon kicked off at 3 pm Friday afternoon and the party doesn't stop till 8 am on Saturday.

It's all to raise money for St. Luke's Children's hospital and other Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. On Friday, some of the children the students are trying to help stop by to dance and play and games with the students.

"At 3 am when I can't feel my feet and it's rave hour and I'm just so tired because I've been up for so many hours I just think of their smiles and  what they went through and it makes it worth it so I just keep on dancing," said BSU senior Elyssa Whight. 

Over the past five years, the students have raised over $370,000 and this year they hope to raise $190,000. To donate, click here.
