Dance Marathon is the largest student-run philanthropic event on the College of Charleston campus. With annual campus participation averaging around 150 people, and near one half million dollars in funds raised to date, the fun-filled event also provides meaningful experiences for participants. Music acts, interactive dance showcases, comedy, insightful testimonials, visits from patients and families, as well as emotionally moving video updates from past recipients, comprise the 13 hour event. The event raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network at MUSC Children's Hospital. Dance Marathon is coordinated and run by a student executive board and is housed in and advised by the Higdon Student Leadership Center staff and MUSC liaison.
For Dance Marathon 2017, our students and community raised over $50,000 cash for MUSC's Children's Hospital, staying on track for our 3-year goal of $150,000!
