High School Dance Marathon and Mini-Marathon Programs increase their year-long fundraising impact by 47%!

One of our collegiate Dance Marathon programs, Dance Marathon at the University of Florida, recently closed out Mini-Marathon season on March 23, raising almost $10,000!

  • Saint Francis Catholic Academy: $9,063.41

As Dance Marathon season officially comes to a close, we would like to publicly recognize some of our largest donors– middle and high school students! During the 2018-2019 year, the following programs, stewarded by OwlThon at Florida Atlantic University, Dance Marathon at Florida State University, and Dance Marathon at the University of Florida raised an incredible $1,049,153.01 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This is a 47% increase over 2017-2018 and the first time in Miracle Network Dance Marathon history that these programs have surpassed a collective $1 million for UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital! The high school dance marathon and mini-marathon movement has been growing exponentially since 2013, and we are so thankful for your shared commitment to serving our local kids through your fundraising and leadership development efforts:
