DMLC provides student leaders, campus advisors, and hospital associates the opportunity to network, to learn best practices that have led to Miracle Network Dance Marathon successes, and spend the weekend planning for the coming year. Presenters and speakers are well-versed in Miracle Network Dance Marathon, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, nonprofit strategy, and management.

Distinguished Leadership Award
2021 Distinguished Leadership Award Recipients

The Distinguished Leadership Award is an effort to recognize the incredible contributions of the collegiate and high school graduating student leaders who have made an exceptional impact within their Dance Marathon program, on their individual campus, and for their local Childgren’s Miracle Network Hospital. Our hope is to recognize a group of students from throughout the United States and Canada for:

  • Leadership within their respective Dance Marathon organization, serving as a role model for other students and working to grow the Dance Marathon movement on their campus.
  • Commitment to the cause through personal fundraising and advocating for children’s hospitals’ need for donations.
Child Health Day

Every year, on the first Monday of October, the Miracle Network Dance Marathon movement, represented at over 400 college, university, and K-12 campuses, unites together to celebrate Child Health Day and raise critical funds for children’s hospitals.

Students come together to join, raise, and share on Child Health Day under the vision that Kids Can’t Wait, they need care now.
