This year's dance marathon will take place Saturday, Nov. 19. Register by going to sludm.org.
Dance Marathon is an event supported by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to honor the children treated there. The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat all illnesses, and Dance Marathon attempts to raise money in effort to provide medical care in treating patients.
All year long, SLUDM raises money to support Children’s Miracle Network by putting on fundraisers and events to increase awareness of Children’s Miracle Network and its mission. All fundraisers lead up to the actual Dance Marathon event, to which all students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to contribute and support the Children’s Miracle Network children by raising money.
At SLUDM, the students will honor the children by standing for 12 hours and participating in games, dancing and other activities. It’s a chance to show these children and their families we are fighting with them in their battles.
