What is Dance Marathon?
Dance Marathon is a student-led organization that raises funds and awareness throughout the year for sick and injured kids treated at our local children's hospital. Students and organizations join our campus-wide movements by registering and creating fundraising pages, participating in events on campus, and asking friends and family members for donations. Our year comes together at our annual Dance Marathon event, where we connect with and honor patient families, play games, enjoy entertainment, fundraise, and reveal our annual fundraising total - all in support of kids at our local children's hospital.
Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high school students at more than 300 schools across the country, all raising money for the kids of the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospital in their community. Students spend a year fundraising and interacting with CMN kids and their families all leading up to a huge 6 hour "party" called Dance Marathon. We hope to give the kids and their families one day out of the year to forget about their sickness and let them have fun!
"We dance for those who can't."
After raising $15,291 last year, our goal at our 2020 Dance Marathon is to raise $20,000 for the kids! Our main goal though is to bring support to the children and families affected by disease and illness. The K-State Dance Marathon team is all for the kids and bringing help to those at our local children’s hospital.
WE DID IT!!!! We BEAT our goal of raising $15,000! We want to thank all that donated and supported our effort to help the kids this past year. This is truly how the K-State Family is done! In 2020 our goal is to raise $20,000! So register, donate and dance to help us reach that goal!
