Dance Marathon’s Impact
Join the Children’s Miracle Network movement by participating in Iowa State Dance Marathon! Dance Marathon is neither a dance nor a marathon; it is a celebration of life. Our organization has been helping children with life threatening illnesses for over 22 years, giving financial and emotional support to hundreds of families across Iowa. The money raised through our events is given directly to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, one of the 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in North America. As the largest student philanthropy on campus, you can join over 800 students in a yearlong fundraising and awareness campaign in a 15-hour celebration in January, which we call Dance Marathon!
