The University of Illinois is on a mission to help sick and injured kids in our local community.

We are raising funds and awareness through Dance Marathon for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital in Springfield Illinois. St. John's treats children from all over Illinois and provides life-saving care to sick and injured kids in need, at no cost to the family.


Register today to join the year-long movement and the largest philanthropy at Illinois! IlliniThon's Big Event will take place on March 28th 2020 from 10 am to 10 pm at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) at the University of Illinois and once registered you have access to all of our events throughout the year.


If you have any questions about the event or about getting involved in IlliniThon please contact Jess Gruen at [email protected]


If you have questions about what Dance Marathon is, how to set up your fundraising page, or about a donation to our cause, the FAQ page can help.


We need your help in making more miracles for every kid in Illinois. Register or donate today!


Student-Led Movement

Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a student-led movement on campus supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. All year long, we raise funds for kids at our local children's hospital by hosting various events and fundraisers around campus. 

Dedicated to supporting kids

I'm joining other students, faculty and community members who are dedicated to supporting kids and families in need by asking for donations from friends like YOU!
