USFSP’s Miracle Dance Marathon (2015-2016)

by Jonah King


Dance Marathon has become a premiere event very quickly since its inception in 2015 when USFSP raised over $6,000 for All Children’s Hospital and kids dealing with life-threatening illness. This more than tripled the goal of $2,015 set for the event.

In 2016, the USFSP Dance Marathon organization went all in and set a lofty $10,000 goal. The students came through and surpassed the goal raising $10,068.

Students stay on their feet and dance for the 8-hour event in support of children that can’t. Parents come in with their children and bring their personal stories to the stage.

The ballrooms are filled with activities, food, and socialization as seen in the videos below.

Check out our Dance Marathon playlist on YouTube and photos to get an even better idea of what Dance Marathon looks like at USFSP.
