Bakersifeld woman does 24 hours of "Just Dance" to raise money for charity

She is looking to break the current world record

Bakersfield, Calif. - Carrie Swidecki is no stranger to these types of games. 

She trains heavily and prepares her body to the best of her ability through her nutrition, to be able to execute this goal. 

Dancing for 24 hours to the video game, "Just Dance". She has a crew that is going to be watching her around the clock to make sure that she doesn't repeat a song, take too long of a break, and is able to beat the high scores of those songs. 

All this however is for a cause. Proceeds that are accepted through her attempt will be going towards the Children's Miracle Network at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital. 

One child in particular was eager to dance alongside her. His name is Malachi Diaz and he has been in and out of the hospital due to his severe asthma and respiratory problems. 

"I like to move around my body, it gives you energy". 

Malachi was not aware that he would be going to this event today. When he arrived, he could not believe it. 

"I didn't know we were going to dance and do all this stuff so when I found out I got happy." 

Although she would like to break this new objective in front of her, Carrie is certain about the most important outcome. 

"So they can go out there and reach their dreams." 

Carrie will continue dancing through the night and Malachi will try to stick by her side for as long as he can.
