What Is Dance Marathon?

Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a movement, powered by over 300,000 college and high school students on 300 campuses across North America. Since inception, Miracle Network Dance Marathon has raised more than $217 million for kids across North America- ensuring that no child or family fights pediatric illness or injury alone. ASU and NAU Dance Marathons are yearlong fundraising efforts that benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital. It culminates a 6 to 48 hour Dance Marathon event where students reveal and celebrate the year’s fundraising total, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and meet with patient families treated at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Why Should I Dance?

While dancing is fun, it takes more than dance moves to help save and improve kids’ lives. Dance Marathon is about demonstrating our commitment to local kids and raising funds to help all kids get the care they need and deserve. So if you don’t know how or do not like to dance, you can still be a part of our Dance Marathon movement For The Kids!
