Miracle Network Dance Marathon recognized top performing Dance Marathon programs at the Dance Marathon Leadership Conference held in Atlanta, GA July 21-24, 2022.

Congratulations to St. Ambrose University Dance Marathon for receiving the 2022 Partnership Award. Collaborative partnerships allow Dance Marathon organizations to increase fundraising, reach new audiences, and provide new engagement opportunities for participants, while also providing value to the partner. St. Ambrose University Dance Marathon was approached by a local high school to begin a mini–Dance Marathon program and the collegiate program jumped at the opportunity to build this new partnership. Together, the advisors, collegiate program, and high school students worked collaboratively to spread the mission and vision of Dance Marathon throughout the community. With a goal to build awareness and get students excited about this new program, the high school set a goal to raise $10,000 and due to the partnership with the collegiate program, the high school raised $22,000 in their first year.

Miracle Network Dance Marathon is an international movement, involving over 400 colleges, universities and K-12 schools across the United States and Canada that fundraise for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. These students work tirelessly throughout the year to raise funds one dollar at a time by making the ask to family and friends. Their hard work culminates in a 6–40-hour celebration on their campus or virtually, where participants have the opportunity to rally together as a community for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Students involved in Dance Marathon gain valuable skills in fundraising, peer management, delegation, and philanthropy. Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs have collectively raised more than $300 million since 1991.
