What is Dance Marathon?
Dance Marathon is a year long student-led initiative which aims to raise funds for children in need of specialized pediatric medical care that is otherwise not available to them locally.
At Florida State, our movement culminates into a 30-hour event where over 1,800 students stay awake and on their feet "For The Kids"!

Instead, we held a hybrid Marathon with virtual events as well as socially distanced in-person events on FSU's intramural fields and in the FSU Civic Center parking lot!
In 2021, we could not have our traditional Marathon in the Civic Center due to COVID-19.
Although there were many challenges, we persevered "Against All Odds"
to have another amazing year of Dance Marathon!
We are the largest
student-run organization at
Florida State University!
This year, 2021-2022, is our 27th year at Florida State!
