Dancing to Donations: Local Schools Raise Nearly Half a Million Dollars for Kids at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital

We are excited to celebrate the amazing work of seven area schools who led this year’s Miracle Network Dance Marathon movement in West Michigan: Calvin University, Grand Valley State University, Holland Christian High School, Hope College, West Ottawa High School, Western Michigan University and Zeeland East High School.

Collectively, they raised nearly half a million dollars for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital (HDVCH)! 100% of the donations raised stay local and benefit critical programs and services at HDVCH like Child Life, Pediatric Oncology Resource Team (P.O.R.T.) and the Congenital Heart Program.  

A huge thank you to all our student leaders, advisers and event participants who helped make this year the most successful yet. In addition, we would like to thank our Dance Marathon Title Sponsor, Wendy’s, who’s generous contribution allowed our students to generate new and engaging fundraising ideas.

Please take a moment to relive some incredible moments brought to us by our future philanthropists, whom we are so grateful for.
