Join The Movement
it’s all for the kids
Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a movement of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for more than 170 pediatric hospitals. We are the only children’s charity committed to having 100% of the funds raised stay local to support local kids.
Since inception, Miracle Network Dance Marathon has raised more than $135 million for kids across North America- ensuring that no child or family fights pediatric illness or injury alone.
Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a movement activating university and high school students across North America. Students involved in planning for the dance marathon event spend a year gaining leadership, teamwork, and nonprofit business experience while raising funds & interacting with children’s hospital patients and families.
The year culminates with a 12-40 hour event (the dance marathon) where students stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment in symbolic support of children served by their local CMN Hospital.

dance marathon programs
In 1991, students at Indiana University founded dance marathon in the memory of Ryan White, a fellow student who passed away from HIV/AIDS. The program now spans North America, benefiting hundreds of hospitals and countless kids in the United States and Canada. Dance marathons have become a tradition on campus and in the community.
Each organization is entirely student-run and 100% of all funds raised go directly to the school’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Last year alone, Miracle Network Dance Marathons raised more than $27 million. You can join the movement, too. Bring a new tradition to your school and help kids in your area have a brighter future.
