Dance Marathon at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Kids Can't Wait! If we can Change Kids' Health we can Change the Future!

About Us

Dance Marathon at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, is one piece in a larger international movement of students committed to enhancing the lives of both kids and families affected by childhood injury and illness through the Children's Miracle Network. We are committed to raising funds for children being treated in our local hospital, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. As the generation fighting for the next, we are determined to raise not only funds but also to educate and inspire our campus and community to provide constant support for the families affected.

Dance Marathon at ERAU is a year-round organization that has raised a total of $45,138.30 since being brought onto the Embry-Riddle Campus in 2020.

Our Main Event is not a competition and does not require the ability to dance! While attendees are taught a fun and easy line dance (in which occurs every hour on the hour) throughout the course of the event, they also take part in fun-filled games and events, as well as enjoy entertainment from musicians and performance groups. Event attendees are visited by miracle families, who share their touching stories, reminding them that what they are doing is making a difference in the lives of others!
