if you happened to stop by Florida State's medical school during the noon hour, you might have been surprised to see folks cuttin' a rug out front.

While it all looked like fun, it was for a very good cause.

Dance Marathon of FSU and Children's Miracle Network at the University of Florida presented FSU's College of Medicine a check for more than $330,000 today.

The money is part of a record $701,000 raised in 2013 by Dance Marathon.

"We do Dance Marathon for the kids," said Dance Marathon Executive Director Ryan Ellison. "And we feel like if we keep that focus on the kids, we'll be able to do anything," said Ellison.

Dance Marathon is the largest student run philanthropy on FSU's campus.

The money raised will be used for health care issues for Gadsden County children, equipment for Tallahassee Memorial Hospital's pediatrics unit and counseling for children at Big Bend Hospice.
