Dance Marathon at the University of Florida is the largest student-run and highest fundraising philanthropy in the Southeast United States. Our mission is to strive to bring together the campus and community to raise funds and awareness for our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, UF Health Shands Children's Hospital. We are going into our 30th year of Dance Marathon at UF, having fundraised over $30,000,000 thus far. This past year, we celebrated our 29th year by raising a historic $2,007,079.05!
DM at UF is one of the five founding Dance Marathon programs in the nation. Since our start, we have raised more than $30 million for the Miracle Families UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital, our local Children’s Miracle Network hospital.
Ranked one of the top 50 pediatric hospitals in the nation in seven categories, UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network have created one of the greatest facilities of care for children and young adults.
Take a moment to meet the heart and soul of our movement. Our Miracle Families are the inspiration for every student who is part of DM at UF.
