Our team is on a mission to help sick and injured kids in our local community and we need your help. UF Health Shands Children's Hospital, our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, or even their family's ability to pay. Each day, these kids face huge obstacles as they fight against cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid. 

To help raise funds for these brave kids, we are participating in a movement called Dance Marathon at the University of Florida. Students pledge to raise funds and awareness for patient families at local children's hospitals throughout the year, culminating in a 26.2 hour event where we get to meet Miracle Families, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and reveal the fundraising total from the entire year! It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support our efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to Shands. 

Since its inception, Miracle Network Dance Marathon has raised more than $200 million for kids across North America - ensuring that no child or family fights pediatric illness or injury alone. We are this generation fighting for the next. 

Miracle Network Dance Marathon benefits Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for more than 170 pediatric hospitals across North America. We are the only children's charity committed to having 100% of the funds raised stay local to support local kids. 

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. To make a safe and easy online donation to a member of our team, click on the "Roster" tab and then on a participant's name. 

We need your help to reach our goal For The Kids. Thank you so much for supporting our team's efforts!
