Dance Marathons

College and high school students in Central Ohio come together through dance marathon to raise funds for Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Dance Marathon is a movement uniting college, university and high school students across North America. Students involved in a dance marathon organization gain leadership, teamwork, and nonprofit business experience while raising funds and awareness for their local hospital. Dance Marathons in Central Ohio culminate the year with an 8-24 hour event (the dance marathon) on each campus where students get to meet patient families, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and reveal their annual fundraising total.

How Your Dance Marathon Can Benefit Nationwide Children’s

Dance Marathon raises critical funds for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Current Dance Marathon programs support psychosocial services, fellowships, clinical trials and other areas of greatest need within the hospital.

How Nationwide Children’s Can Benefit Your School

Nationwide Children’s provides a unique and hands-on experience with all Dance Marathon leaders. This has allowed students to create personal and impactful interactions between hospital staff, each other, and most importantly, the patients they are supporting at Nationwide Children’s. This includes:

  • Direct interaction with Nationwide Children’s Patient Champions and their families
  • Mentorship in areas of fundraising, corporate relations and stewardship
  • Education on the impact of funds raised by the students
  • Leadership and professional development
