Dance Marathon:

February 2013 marked the third anniversary of the return of Dance Marathon to the Minnesota State University-Mankato campus. Dance Marathon is an event held at the end of a fundraising season with all proceeds benefiting the Children's Miracle Network and more specifically, Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, MN. In the three years since its return, the event has raised more than $26,000.  In 2013, that figure was nearly $11,000.  More than 200 participants attended the event.  The patients and their families that were in attendance thoroughly enjoyed themselves and appreciated the opportunity to support the hospital that has helped them so much. The families also shared that they enjoyed the interaction of our great students with their children. This event allowed our Greek community, our university community and our community at large to shine and really show these families that we support them. We look forward to the 2014 Dance Marathon which will take place on February 1, 2014.
