Washington University in St. Louis Dance Marathon Raised More Than $121,449 for Children’s Miracle Network of Greater St. Louis

Participants danced, played with inflatables such as 3 Man Bungee run, danced with their Chancellor, watched student performances, hung out with miracle families, and were fed. Every hour had a different theme and the music matched with the theme. They viewed videos and heard from people who were directly impacted by Children’s Miracle Network of Greater St Louis.  Participants also took multiple pictures in our photo booth and by our large, wooden, painted “FTK” letters and also our performance groups.

There was a family room where the families were able to go if they felt overwhelmed by the crowd of dancers. Snacks and games were available for children and their families in the room. Students  liaisons were assigned for each of the families. They shared their stories with our dancers.

They are truly a one of a kind event at Washington University, and are one of two that directly benefits Children’s Miracle Network of Greater St Louis. There are students who attend WashU who have been in the hospital in their past, know someone who has been, or are knowledgeable about the hospital itself.  This is a hospital that provides service to so many people and we are honored to support them. Thank you Love’s Travel Stops for supporting this Dance Marathon.
