Miracle Network Dance Marathon is an international movement, involving over 400 colleges, universities and K-12 schools across North America that fundraise for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
At our local CMN hospital, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, we are proud to have four collegiate Dance Marathon programs and three high school programs raising funds and awareness for HDVCH. Since 2000, our Dance Marathon programs have raised over $3.7 million to support 20 programs and services that rely on philanthropy to continue.
Last year, the students raised more than $30,000 for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, and they hope to beat that number this year.
To honor their work for the hospital, students were invited in September to attend Spectrum Health’s Celebration of Philanthropy Night.

The Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum, in conjunction with Charity Dynamics, has released their annual Peer-to Peer-Fundraising 30, which ranks the 30 largest peer-to-peer fundraising programs in the United States. Collectively, the top thirty campaigns raised $1.45 billion in 2017 for a variety of non-profit organizations. Miracle Network Dance Marathon made the list as the 14th highest fundraising program in the nation and was recognized during a main stage presentation at the P2P Professional Forum.
