Dance Marathon

Welcome to Dance Marathon 2014!

Thank you for your interest in participating in Dance Marathon 2014: Put your money where the miracles are! FTK - For the Kids! We are very excited for you to experience Dance Marathon (DM) with us this year! By participating, you are making a difference in the lives of many families who are a part of Children’s Miracle Network.         

Being on your feet for hours and raising $150 may seem like a lot, but we know you can do it! Although it may be tiring, you need to keep in mind the motto of Dance Marathon: "Put your money where the miracles are" and "FTK - For the Kids!" So every dance move you make is for a good cause! As for the money, you can fundraise to reach $150, and all the money you raise will go to the Monroe Carrel Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.        

With your help, we know we can reach and exceed our goal for the kids! Dance Marathon is going to be packed with fun filled activities so get a team together, put on your dancing shoes, and get ready to dance!  

When and Where?

Friday, October 17, 2014,  8:00 p.m.-2:00 a.m. in the Red Barn! 

How to get started:

Get together a team of 5-10 people and register for Dance Marathon. Each team needs to raise $150 in order to participate. Once you have created a team, choose a Morale Captain who will be able to attend rehearsals for the “Morale Dance” that will be taught at Dance Marathon. Also the Morale Captain should be energetic because he/she will be the one helping your team throughout the night.  

If you are an individual dancer, you will need to raise $15 to participate. However, whether you are an individual or on a team, you’ll still have an amazing time! 

More about the Music:

There will be a live band present for the first three hours and a wide variety of music played through out the night by a DJ.   Every hour on the hour we will teach a portion of the Morale Dance that we will have put together and ready to dance as group in the 1 - 2 am hour.  You will also  hear a story from a family that has been a patient of Children's Hospital.

Activities:

Besides dancing, there will be other events present at Dance Marathon. There will be story book themes every hour - so costumes are  preferred for the night but not required.  Also, there will be a photo booth provided by SGA and inflatables.  Each hour will have 1 or 2 additional themed events to represent that story book for the hour.  For example, Alice in Wonderland will have a Mad Hatter Tea Pary and 21 Card games.  Last but not least you can JUST DANCE - FTK FOR THE KIDS!!!
