Why dance?

It benefits kids

Funds raised through Dance Marathon support the Every Child Fund at Boston Children’s Hospital, our most vital area of need. Your participation empowers us to respond to a changing world with one goal: to give every child a healthy future. Every penny goes directly to supporting Boston Children’s lifesaving work for children and families.

It benefits you

Dance Marathon will give you real-world, resume quality, hands-on experience. How? You’ll gain valuable leadership skills while managing this yearlong fundraiser, its various committees and events.

It benefits your school

Demonstrate that your school is an engaged community partner. Dance Marathon unites your entire campus—all students, faculty and staff across all classes, majors and interests—around a local cause, creating a tradition of giving. It also gives colleges and universities an edge among prospective students.
