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 2019-2020 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 $1,198,850.85 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This is a 14% increase over 2018-2019 and the second year in a row these programs have surpassed a collective $1 million for UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital! The high school dance marathon has been growing steadily at Shands since 2013, and we are so thankful for your shared commitment to serving our local kids through your fundraising and leadership development efforts:
