Dancers made it through the last song to find out how much money they raised for the Children's Miracle Network and the FSU Medical School's outreach programs.
When the donations were tallied, the group learned they had surpassed their goals.
"No one had any idea that we had exceeded our total of last year by so much, raising 270,000!" exclaimed Whitney Laws, the Dance Marathon public relations chairperson.
Dance Marathon is the largest philanthropy hosted by FSU students. Organizers say they spend the entire year planning and raising money for the final event.
