Getting started

Step 1

Identify a group of interested and dedicated students along with a committed advisor. We recommend an administrator who can assist you throughout the planning process.

Step 2

Contact us to register. We’ll help get you started and show you the tools and resources to host a successful Dance Marathon. Many schools register as a student organization and create their own mission and vision.

Step 3

Recruit and market. Tell people about Dance Marathon, how they can participate and how it helps kids—every dollar raised goes directly to supporting Boston Children’s lifesaving work for children and families.
