The University of Northern Iowa Dance Marathon strives to provide hope and comfort for families with children facing life threatening illnesses by raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital’s and hosting events that heighten student and community awareness.

UNI Dance Marathon is a student organization that raises money for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network. The money that is raised goes towards four things; research, education, equipment and enhancements. These four things will help the children and families to feel as close to home as possible during their stay at the hospital. With the help of UNI students as our dancers we have a goal to raise (unannounced) in our fifth year. Our year will conclude with a BIG EVENT on March 5, 2016.  During this time our dancers will stand from 12 pm to 12 am.  They will also get the chance to hang out with our UNI Dance Marathon Kids that have been and are being treated at the University Of Iowa Children’s Hospital and their families.
