Iowa State University Dance Marathon Recap

Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a fundraising initiative of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through colleges and universities. A group of students will create a leadership team and together, they work on setting up a ‘Big Event’ which they will recruit students to attend and fundraise for. Fundraising for this program has been growing rapidly in the past few years and many new schools are joining the movement.

Iowa State University celebrated their 20th event this year! The students preserved through tough changes and situations this year and still managed to execute a top-notch Dance Marathon. Their passion, collaboration, and strategic mindset led them to recruit over 600 students and fundraise $293,094.20 For The Kids!

ISU DM united their campus to fight for one cause; in fact, in one day they had a goal to raise $20,000 but blew it out of the water by raising over $24,000. They also united their community by hosting 5k’s, gaining local businesses to partner with them, and hosting ‘mini-marathons’ at many Ames-Area High Schools.
