Thousands of college and high school students across North America will be recognizing their shared fundraising impact on 127 member Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals on Thursday, Sept. 25.
The first-ever Dance Marathon Day will officially kick off a school year of more than $20 million projected to be raised by college and high school students funding vital needs at their community’s CMN Hospital. Donations generated through Dance Marathon campus programs help provide medical equipment, treatment and recovery programs, research and uninsured/underinsured care for the 10 million children who visit 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals annually.
“Since 1991, Dance Marathon in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has grown dramatically because it taps into the power of impassioned students to change lives for sick and injured kids in their school’s community,” said Zac Johnson, head of Dance Marathon at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Dance Marathon is about students coming together for a year to organize a professional-grade fundraising event, joining together for a culminating campus event, and seeing firsthand the impact that giving back has on local kids and families.”
