North High School Student Council students raised $14,093 through their annual Dance Marathon in support of UnityPoint Health - St. Luke’s Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) on Friday, April 8th.
Students raised donations through sponsorships, product fundraising, and coin competitions leading up to the event. Over 100 attendees participated in this year’s Dance Marathon event for an evening full of dancing, games, and entertainment, with all proceeds benefiting CMN. After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the students came back with even more passion than before, doubling their last total amount raised, $7,000 in 2019.
North High School Dance Marathon was supported by the following: Carlin Law Office, Northwest Bank, Sunnybrook Shine, Fire Tacos, Key Club, American Family Insurance (Julie Bower), Johnnie Mars, Foulk Brothers, Midwest Mobile Gas, Tikka Indian Grill, Edge Adventures LLC, Pizza Ranch, Four Seasons, and T’s to Pleeze.
Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high school students at more than 250 schools across the country, all raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their community. Each event is entirely student run and all donate 100% of the funds raised directly to their local Children's Miracle Network. Students learn invaluable leadership and life skills while raising funds and interacting with children’s hospital patients and families.
Gifts to St. Luke’s Children’s Miracle Network are used to enhance children’s healthcare services at UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s through the purchase of new equipment and supplies and to fund special services and health education for children and families.
