Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high school students at more than 450 schools – all raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. These students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and life skills while raising funds and gathering awareness for kids and families experiencing pediatric illness. Their year culminates with a 12-40 hour event where students stay on their feet through dancing, games, entertainment and interaction with children’s hospital patients and families in symbolic support of children served by their local CMN Hospital. More students participate in Miracle Network Dance Marathon than any other student-led philanthropy in the United States. Since it’s founding, this nationwide movement has raised more than $106 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The 9miles Media team partnered with Dance Marathon at NC State University to capture footage inside Duke Children’s Hospital, and at the culminating event to use for future promotional videos. The recap video for the event was shot and edited on-site during the event so that it could be played at the end of the event. We are looking forward to partnering with the organization again next year.
