Students hope dance marathon will raise charity funds

u0 Event aims to raise funds for
Children's Miracle Network for
William Beaumont Hospital
y Angela Delk
For the Daily
Planners for an upcoming dance marathon
hope to live up to the event's slogan - "making
kids smile, maize and blue style."
"It is going to be incredible ... and really real-
ly exciting," said Deborah Wagner, who chairs
the event's entertainment committee. Wagner
said she is spending a lot of time choosing
bands, DJs and campus singing groups for the
dance marathon.
The event will be held Feb. 7-8 at the Indoor
Track and Tennis Building. Participants will

dance for 30 hours in an effort to raise proceeds
for the Children's Miracle Network for the
William Beaumont Hospital.
This will be "the first year ever of the
Dance Marathon at U of M," said Bradley
Holeman, LSA junior and the morale com-
mittee chair. Holcman's duties require keep-
ing spirits high for an expected 150 dancers
and volunteers.
To keep the audience pumped throughout the
evening, Holeman said the spirit theme for this
year's marathon is "Around the World Every
Two Hours." Participants will dance to music
from different cultural, racial and ethnic back-
grounds representing different parts of the coun-
try.
Holeman said he is excited about the New
York portion of the marathon, when a ball will

be dropped to simulate New Year's Eve in Times
Square.
The Children's Miracle Network trained com-
mittee members on how to develop a dance
marathon to directly benefit to a local CMN hos-
pital.
Since the first dance marathon at
Pennsylvania State University in 1993, CMN
has focused on using the event as a means to
raise funds and awareness.
Last year, Penn State's 4th annual dance
marathon earned $1.51 million.
Evan Meyers, an LSA junior involved in
planning the dance marathon at the
University, said he hopes 150 participants
will raise about $37,500.
"The purpose of the marathon is to pro-
mote a positive image for students on cam-

pus, to build a legacy of caring and commu-
nity involvement, raise money for local kids
and learn how to run a business with real-life
challenges and experiences," said CMN
Director David Facen.
Holeman said the event also will promote
campus diversity.
"It will give students from all different back-
grounds the opportunity to develop diverse
friendships and have a great time with mem-
bers of the university community," Holeman
said.
Meyers said planners hope the dance
marathon will become an annual institution.
"We hope the Dance Marathon will be around
and increasingly successful for may years to
come," Meyers said.

LANSING (AP) - High schoolers
in Michigan wear seat belts, exercise
and stay away from some drugs in
roughly the same proportion as teens
from around the nation.
But according to a survey released
yesterday of almost 4,000 students,
many have tried marijuana at least
once, and a majority have had at least
one alcoholic beverage in the past
month.
The numbers come from the nation-
al Youth Risk Behavior Survey, con-
ducted this spring by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
The survey asked 3,933 high-school
students between the ages of 12 and 21
questions about smoking, drug use,
sex, physical activity and dietary
habits.
Out of 80 questions, Michigan teens
had answers that were similar to the last
survey's 1995 national results on 75
items.
For example, a large majority of stu-
dents said they had tried cigarette
smoking, had at least one drink of alco-
hol and talked with their parents about
AIDS or HIV infection.
The survey suggests that students are

concerned about their health, but still
take part in a few risky activities,espe-
cially smoking and drinking.
About 82 percent said they had tried
alcohol, while 75 percent said they had
tried cigarette smoking.
Thirty-two percent said they had
drank five or more drinks in a row in
the past month; 48 percent said they
had tried marijuana at least once in their
life.
On the safe side, 19 percent said they
rarely or never wore a seat belt. And 56
percent of Michigan students had exer-
cised to lose weight or to keep from
gaining weight in the past month.
Almost half said they had had sex,
and among students who had sex in the
past three months, 58 percent said they
used a condom.
Lindy Miller, a junior at Holt
High School, said her peers have a
lot of information about the choices
they make, whether to exercise or
smoke.
"There are a lot of programs that do
a lot of things to advertise what can
happen to you," she said. But "a lot of
people are curious, and it's just an age
of experimenting.
