Dance Marathon programs end 2019-2020 season on high note

As the three largest events in our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals market, Dance Marathon programs continued with great momentum in making miracles For The Kids, against all odds.

During the 2019-2020 year, Dance Marathon at the University of Florida, Dance Marathon at Florida State University and OwlThon at Florida Atlantic University raised an incredible $4,586,980.06 for the kids at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. We are so thankful for their shared commitment to serving our local kids through fundraising and leadership development efforts, even in times of extraordinary uncertainty.
