What is Dance Marathon?
University of Nebraska-Lincoln Dance Marathon is one of the largest student registered organizations on campus. Every year, we recruit students from all over campus to come together and fundraise for the Children’s Hospital in Omaha. We host small events on campus and within the Lincoln community to integrate all walks of life into our mission of being one generation fighting for the next. The pinnacle of our year is a 13.1 hour “Dance Marathon” where UNL students and kids who have been treated at Children’s Hospital come together to celebrate the money we have raised and dance the night away. We integrate dancing, live acts such as a children’s talent show, crafts and activities for all ages, and even shaving heads for the kids to give families and children affected to have a day without the worries associated with their numerous stays in the hospital.
