Just Keep Dancing
Every child deserves the hope and healing of children’s hospitals. With the help of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® in their community, children of all ages and backgrounds can receive treatment for every imaginable disease and injury—from asthma and broken bones to cancer and heart defects. Children’s hospitals are also on the front lines of research, education and outreach programs that keep millions of kids out of the hospital each year.
What is Dance Marathon? Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high
school students at more than 300 schools. The entirely student-run
program donates 100 percent of the funds they raise to the CMN hospital in their community. Helen DeVos Children’s
Hospital is West Michigan’s local CMN hospital. All funds raised go back
to help the patients and families right here in West Michigan.
Students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and life skills by
raising funds in a variety of ways, interacting with Helen DeVos Children’s
Hospital’s patients and families. The year culminates with a 12-40 hour
event where students stay on their feet through dancing, games and
entertainment in symbolic support of children.
