An incredible total of $2,210,165.21 raised was revealed at the end of their annual 40 hour event because of the dedication, commitment and passion of thousands of Florida State University students. Congratulations DM at FSU and welcome to another year in the Miracle Million Club.

“This is truly a labor of love for all of us,” said SVP/Market Manager JOHN FULLAM. “It is an honor to support the kids of Colorado and their families and we are extremely proud of our generous listeners; their support and donations will not only make a difference but ultimately saves lives.”

DM at UF: This year Dance Marathon at the University of Florida celebrated their 25th anniversary with a yearlong campaign entitled “when we believe” highlighting the remarkable things their community is able to accomplish when they believe in their impact and in this cause. Thousands of UF students gathered on March 30th & 31st for over 26 hours in celebration of their yearlong efforts of raising funds and awareness for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. At the end, the students at UF revealed a total raised of $3,230,025.23. DM at UF, congratulations on a record breaking 25th year & thank you!

KNIGHT-THON: This year thousands of UCF students came together as Knight-Thon to raise $1,288,360.23 for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. With the message to the community of “This is Why” Knight-Thon encouraged its community members to find the reason “why” they continue to support and advocate for this movement. Whether a student joined because of their connection to the cause, to dance with friends, or to be a part of something new, each student was able to develop an individual connection to their mission of providing hope, healing, and compassion to children treated at their hospital. Knight-Thon, thank you for showing us your “why”and congratulations on earning your spot in the Miracle Million Club for another year.
