Checking In with Miracle Network Dance Marathon – October 2016

It’s been a busy start to the fall semester for many Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs! Here’s just a few examples of the great work being done #ForTheKids!


MU Miracle at Mercer University recruited the Mercer Men’s Lacrosse team to participate in a competition with Furman Men’s Lacrosse to see which team can raise the most for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! The team has set a goal to raise $15,000 by Oct. 31st and is well on their way!

As of today, Mercer Men's Lacrosse has raised just over $8,500 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in participation…

Ball State University Dance Marathon revealed some pretty great fundraising incentives for their participants this week…

Great to see Jagathon at IUPUI encouraging their high school dance marathon programs to fundraise at their football games.

Dance Marathon at Southern Methodist University set a goal to raise $3.1K in one day to recognize the 31 days they have until their event. Great to see how they used the Miracle Network Dance Marathon flame logo on campus to spread the word!

USD Dakotathon shared their progress on social media during their #5KinaDay campaign with a flame logo fundraising thermometer.

Campus Involvement:

University of Cincinnati Dance Marathon created a #DefineUCDM campaign during their campus’ Homecoming Week to share facts about their hospital tied to campus statistics.

TigerTHON at Towson University partnered with their university by having a fundraising competition added into the school’s official Homecoming activities!

Great to see Eaglethon at American University getting involved on campus and supporting other organizations.

EagleTHON's Internal Director Sami Bass donated blood to Children's National Medical Center today, will you? #FTKHere…

Knight-Thon at the University of Central Florida is starting a new tradition to increase their presence on campus and be a resource for dancers.


Cowboython at Oklahoma State University is attempting to break records on Double Our Dancers Day.

Loving this graphic from Texas THON at the University of Texas–Austin to encourage students to register during the week leading up to the Red River Rivalry football game with Oklahoma.

Public Relations:

Terp Thon at the University of Maryland released their video to announce their “Bigger, Bolder, so the kids can go Stronger” campaign.

Bigger. Bolder. Stronger.

Since 2010, Terp Thon has grown larger with each passing year. Every year we strive to push boundaries with bold ideas. Every year our purpose is to help children grow up stronger. This year, we are Bigger, Bolder so the kids can grow Stronger.
