USD presents 12th annual Dance Marathon Saturday

VERMILLION, S.D. -- More than 150 University of South Dakota students will dance the day and night away for a good cause—Children’s Miracle Network. USD students will be participating in the 12th annual Dance Marathon, beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 28. Proceeds from this event will benefit Children’s Miracle Network at Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls, S.D.

Dance Marathon is a 24-hour event that raises money and awareness for CMN, an organization dedicated to assisting families of ill children. While dancing serves as a big part of the event, there are additional activities, including honoring miracle children, listening to captivating family depositions, and games. The student executive committee, dance instructors, hypnotists and magicians all come together to help CMN families during USD’s largest student-run fundraiser.

This year's event will recognize 16 miracle families, and offers a plethora of surprises for Dance Marathon participants.
