During the 2018-2019 year, collegiate DM programs raised an incredible $5,688,060.86 for the kids at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. This is a 5 percent increase over 2017-2018.
Some of our largest donors were middle and high school students! During the 2018-2019 year, middle and high school programs stewarded by OwlThon at Florida Atlantic University, Dance Marathon at Florida State University and Dance Marathon at the University of Florida raised an incredible $1,049,153.01. This is a 47 percent increase over 2017-2018 and the first time in Miracle Network Dance Marathon history that these programs have surpassed a collective $1 million for UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital.
Dance Marathon programs at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital have been growing exponentially since 1995 in both monetary support and student participation, and we are so thankful for your shared commitment to serving our local kids through your fundraising and leadership development efforts.
