What is Miracle Network Dance Marathon?

Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a philanthropic movement uniting students at over 400 colleges, universities and high schools across North America. Students involved in a campus’s dance marathon organization spend a year gaining leadership, teamwork, and nonprofit business experience while raising funds and awareness for their local CMN Hospital. The year culminates with a dance marathon event on each campus where students get to meet patient families treated at their local hospital, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and reveal their annual fundraising total.

As this movement comes to the U, a new Dance Marathon at the University of Utah student organization will be formed on campus. Staff from CMN Hospitals are currently recruiting student leaders who will help form the founding executive board for the organization. Executive board members will be responsible for laying the foundation for the organization, recruiting student participants, planning and implementing fundraising and awareness efforts, building relationships with university and community partners, and hosting the inaugural dance marathon event.

Dance Marathon provides students with a hands on service-learning experience that develops a sense of community, bringing students and organizations together from all across campus. To learn more about the impact of Dance Marathon, check out this guide.

The efforts of the organization will all be in support of Primary Children’s Hospital.

Primary Children’s Hospital treats children and families from all of Utah as well as Montana, Nevada, Wyoming, and Idaho for a wide variety of pediatric illnesses and injuries. In 2017, 98,795 children came to Primary Children’s Hospital for treatment. Funds raised for Primary Children’s Hospital help to provide charitable care for needy children as well as programs such as music and art therapy, Chaplin services, and bereavement.

By getting involved in Dance Marathon at the University of Utah, you’re joining hundreds of thousands of students across North America who are a part of this generation, fighting for the next and helping to save kids’ lives in your local community.
