TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Students at the University of Alabama are dancing for children.

More than 200 students are expected to participate Saturday in Tuscaloosa in the Alabama Dance Marathon, a 12-hour dance meant to raise money for Children’s of Alabama, a hospital located in Birmingham.

Participants gathered at the student center will have to keep moving from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., and they aren’t allowed to sit.

Money will go straight to Children’s of Alabama to benefit kids with cancer and their families who are treated for cancer and other diseases at the hospital.

The marathon is in its sixth year on campus. The event raised more than $210,000 for Children’s in 2015.
