This year, the Miracle Network Dance Marathon movement is laying the foundation for a new Dance Marathon program at University of California, Berkeley!  

We’re looking for student leaders who are ready to change kids’ health to change the future and help raise funds and awareness for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital treating children and families from the Bay Area and beyond. 

What is Miracle Network Dance Marathon? 

A National Movement, with Local Impact 

A Leadership Opportunity

Dance Marathon empowers students to become leaders and make a difference in the world. Involvement provides students with a hands-on service-learning experience that develops a sense of community, bringing students and organizations together from all across campus. Check out this message from former student leaders to learn more about the student experience within Dance Marathon.
