Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high school students at more than 450 schools – all raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. These students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and life skills while raising funds and gathering awareness for kids and families experiencing pediatric illness. Their year culminates with a 12-40 hour event where students stay on their feet through dancing, games, entertainment and interaction with children’s hospital patients and families in symbolic support of children served by their local CMN Hospital. More students participate in Miracle Network Dance Marathon than any other student-led philanthropy in the United States. Since it’s founding, this nationwide movement has raised more than $106 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
You deserve the best. That’s why we’ve built our mission and services entirely around your needs. From our carefully designed spaces to our comprehensive services, Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare is a place where patients and families come first.
In 1897, Gillette became the nation’s first hospital for children who have disabilities. Since then, we’ve remained committed to changing the world through expert medical care, advocacy efforts and research. Today, we are known worldwide for expertise in treating children, teens and adults who have disabilities and complex medical conditions.
Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.
