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 23 years, the Dance Marathon has raised over 21.5 million dollars for the kids!
