Miracle Week

Miracle Week consists of five full days of Dance Marathon fun! The first day of the week was National Child Health Day and we played Double Dare, the next night was our So You Think You Can Line Dance event. All day on Wednesday we played penny wars on campus. Thursday night we had the most fun dance and dodgeball tournament. Last, but definitely not least, on Friday we had our Dancer Appreciation Day to show our dancers just how much we care about them.

Dance Marathon

All of our events leading up to a weekend-long Dance Marathon that culminates in our year of fundraising efforts. The marathon is broken up into one 10-hour shift, and one 20-hour shift, with over 800 participants in each shift. To join us in this celebration, dancers must sign up during the registration periods in the fall and spring, and fundraise at least $250 For The Kids! The marathon is full of fun, dancing, food, and miracles. We stand in honor of those who can’t. Dance Marathon 2021 will be held on the weekend of March 5-7, 2021.
