Dance Marathon at UNF is part of a nationwide movement involving college and high school students across the country, all raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in their community. Students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and life skills while raising funds and interacting with patients and families. The year culminates with an event in which students stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment in celebration of the total amount raised that year.

Locally, UNF Dance Marathon is entering their 9th year raising funds for the CMN Hospitals of Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. All donations benefit UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital. On Saturday, April 1st, dancers will take part in a 12 hour event to raise funds and awareness for both pediatric programs.
