The Southwestern Community College (SWCC) student ambassadors will be hosting a Miracle Network Dance Marathon on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, from 6-10 p.m. in the SWCC Student Center gymnasium. Everyone is invited to attend and get involved!
The SWCC Dance Marathon has a goal of $5,000. Participants are highly encouraged to secure donations prior to the dance marathon. Funds raised will go to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City. Dance, food, entertainment, and prizes will be provided throughout the event.
The SWCC Dance Marathon is one of more than 300 Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs fundraising for local children’s hospitals. Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a movement uniting college, university, and high school students across North America. The collective efforts of students have raised nearly $180 million since 1991 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a nonprofit organization that raises funds and awareness for 170 pediatric hospitals in the U.S. and Canada.
The programs are student-run organizations that operate throughout the year and culminate in a 6- to 48-hour Dance Marathon event where students reveal and celebrate the year’s fundraising total, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and meet with patient families treated at the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. 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.
