Northwestern students kick off the 43rd Dance Marathon. The first block’s celebrity videos featured Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and political commentator James Carville.

This year, Dance Marathon participants are dancing for 30 hours to raise money for GiGi’s Playhouse, a nonprofit that supports and advocates for people with Down syndrome. Funds will also go to the Evanston Community Foundation, making this the 20th year ECF has been the secondary beneficiary.
