Organized by Hope College Students, the 24-hour up-all-night party with a purpose is conducted to raise funds and awareness for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.
Dance Marathon first came to Hope College in March of 2000 and was expected to raise about $5,000. The students blew that out of the water and raised over $23,000 in the first year. This standard of excellence has followed in the years to come and the total for the 17-year annual event is now over $1.7 million, with all proceeds supporting programs and services at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.
This makes Hope College Dance Marathon the second largest Dance Marathon in the state of Michigan.
