Miracles In Motion: Darby

“Our most recent fundraising push day may be over, but I will keep fighting daily until the conclusion of my fourth and final OwlThon on April 7. Doctors at the hospital never stop fighting and advocating for the kids and families being treated at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. Since they’re working continuously every single day, we need to be as well.” – Darby, Finance Director for OwlThon at Florida Atlantic University

OwlThon recently raised $32,435.18 in 24 hours for the areas of most immediate need at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. Last year, OwlThon raised $242,718.17 through yearlong fundraising efforts. As one of the fastest growing Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs since its inception in 2015, OwlThon has raised $502,822– increasing by 4,134% from 2014-2017.
