This year I have the honor of serving on the executive board for this years Dance Marathon. Last year was my first year participating in Dance Marathon and I was a color team leader for Team Yellow! This year is going to be even more exciting and even more gratifying.
For those who may not know, Dance Marathon is a nationwide event that takes place across schools in support for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. As a college campus in the heart of Boston, we work in supporting our little neighbors at Boston Children's Hospital, just down the street from us! At the end of the year, we all participate in a 12 hour long event from 10pm to 10am to celebrate all our our miracle makers and miracle children.
Dance Marathon is an experience like no other. The miracle children come in the morning as we preform our morale dance for them and see how much we have committed to them through our fundraising efforts.

This year is all about committing to the kids! No donation is too small or too large. I hope you will consider in supporting me in this wonderful cause and helping out our little neighbors down the street.
Here are just some quick facts:
Boston Children’s Hospital treats approximately 1,900 patients every single day. These programs make each patient’s stay a little brighter. $30 – Can provide the balloons for one day in the emergency department. $50 – Can provide 10 meal vouchers for families. $75 – Can provide Parent Coffee Hour for an inpatient floor. $100 - Can provide a helium tank for Child Life. The hospital goes through one helium tank per week decorating for holidays and patient birthdays.
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I hope you will join me in being a part of this generation fighting for the next.
