Dance Marathon’s Changing Kids’ Health on Child Health Day

October 4th is Child Health Day, and local college students are putting in the work to support the kids at Dayton Children’s! Both University of Dayton and Wright State University students are tabling on campus today to spread the word about the Dance Marathon program at their school.

UD Miracle is getting participants excited to fundraise by hosting an all dancer meeting! On October 5th, they will be hosting a coffee shop takeover on campus.

WSU Miracle Makers has planned an action-packed week including a Pinata Party and Dayton Children’s Employee Appreciation Day. The week will end on Saturday, October 9th with a Drive-in Double Feature Event for students, faculty, and community members! They will be showing 101 Dalmatians and Cruella back-to-back and will be collecting donations.

Dance Marathon programs have raised over $922,000 for Dayton Children’s Hospital since 2005.
