Northwestern's Dance Marathon, a charity event where Northwestern students raise money — this year the primary beneficiary was Blessings in a Backpack — and then dance for 30 hours straight, is nearing the home stretch. It began Friday evening, and ends Sunday morning a bit after midnight. You can donate here: http://www.nudm.org/.

Basketball players Alex Olah, Nathan Taphorn and Gavin Skelly made their way to the stage to cheer on the dancers:
