St. John Fisher College's longest running tradition, the 31st Teddi Dance for Love featured hundreds of students, faculty and staff dancing for 24 hours.

They danced away to raise money for Camp Good Days and Special Times.

The organization helps children and their families touched by cancer and other challenges.
Each of the hours has its own theme including Bieber Fever, TopPop and County Hour. The event started Friday night at 8:30 p.m. and ended at the same time Saturday night.

St. John Fisher's Teddi Dance has raised $850,000 to date.

"It started out in 1982," said Danielle Allington, Chair of the Teddi Dance. "I think they had maybe a couple dozen dancers. I know they raised like $7,500. Our goal this year is $48,000. So it's definitely grown in that capacity."

Proceeds will go towards giving sick children a trip to Walt Disney World.
