History and Tradition
In 1994, a unique and motivated group of students, in conjunction with the Children's Miracle Network, created Dance Marathon at the University of Iowa. A year's worth of planning and hard work generated an impressive first year total of $31,000 and included 26 wonderful Families. Over the past 24 years, the Dance Marathon has raised over 24.5 million dollars for the kids! Click on each shirt below to learn more about how each year in Dance Marathon shaped their impact!
