CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS
More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital like Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
miracle network dance marathon
Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a movement uniting college, university and high school students across North America. Students involved in a campus' dance marathon organization spend a year gaining leadership, teamwork, and nonprofit business experience while raising funds and awareness for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. The year culminates with an 8-40 hour event (the dance marathon) on each campus where students get to meet patient families treated at their local hospital, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and reveal their annual fundraising total.
Dance Marathon at SDSU is one of the 400+ Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs in the United States, and we are proud to be a part of the over $300 million raised for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals since 1991. Last year alone, over $44 million was raised, and momentum for this movement is only growing.
