Love’s Supports Dance Marathon Efforts Through Virtual Transitions

Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores continues to go above and beyond to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. As we reflect on the partnership between Love’s and Miracle Network Dance Marathon this spring, there is a lot to celebrate. There were 25 Dance Marathon programs supported, benefitting 22 children’s hospitals. These programs raised a total of $6,265,153 for sick and injured kids!

Members from Love’s participated virtually in July to meet students, campus professionals, CMN Hospitals and local hospitals’ staff at the 2020 Dance Marathon Leadership Conference (DMLC). Over 3,000 student leaders attended the virtual conference to network, learn industry best practices and spend the weekend planning for Miracle Network Dance Marathon successes in the coming year.

During Dance Marathon Leadership Conference, Love’s was the presenting sponsor of the Ideal Business Partner Pitch Competition. The Love’s Ideal Business Partner Pitch exercise is an opportunity for Miracle Million Club Dance Marathon programs to go through a mock corporate partner pitch presentation for CMN Hospitals and Love’s staff members who have years of experience in building meaningful partnerships and leading cause marketing in the nonprofit sector. This experience is designed to help build the core competency of student leaders in identifying and valuing their Dance Marathon program assets, building a pitch deck, and executing a pitch. Ultimately, this experience serves as an opportunity for continued growth and development of our student leaders. In their sponsorship of the competition, Love’s is committed to fostering the entrepreneurial spirit of Dance Marathon and helping this movement have the biggest impact possible in their local communities.
