Dance Marathon is held once a year in order to raise funds and spread awareness and support for the pediatric patients at Driscoll Children's Hospital located in Corpus Christi, TX. Panhellenic Council and the Dance Marathon team work with Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization, in efforts to give back to the local hospital, patients, and families through donating 100% of the funds raised through the event. Dance Marathon helps gather the TAMU-CC community to help sick and injured kids in our local community.
In our first year, we aimed to raise $8,000 to donate to our local Driscoll Children's Hospital. We were blown away at our community's fundraising efforts, raising over $10,000 leading up to the event and even more the following week, ending with a final fundraising total of $11,224. In 2019, we wanted to exceed our initial success and proudly raised a total of $12,001.
