The FTKolor Run started at Ross-Ade Stadium. It was put on by Purdue University's Dance Marathon Committee.

PUDM Special Events Executive Kristen Burger said the event is about more than just Purdue.

"As Purdue and as PUDM we want to include everybody and include them in our mission and just show everybody what dance marathon is all about, what Riley is all about and how we can all come together to help each other," said Burger.

All of the money raised today will go straight to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. The first $100,000 will go to Child Life Specialists who work at the hospital.

The rest goes to the Herman B. Wells Center, where it will be used for pediatric cancer research.
