Dance Marathon CarnivalJan. 25, 2018, 9:22 AM
Seven universities and one high school joined together Monday, Jan. 15, to host the Middle Tennessee Dance Marathon Carnival at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt to get to know their patient and family ambassadors as well as past and present patients of Children’s Hospital and their families. The students who attended are leaders of their campuses’ Miracle Network Dance Marathon event. In 2017, these eight schools raised nearly $400,000 for the hospital. Schools in attendance were Vanderbilt University, Austin Peay State University, Belmont University, Lipscomb University, Middle Tennessee State University, Sewanee, Tennessee Tech University and the Webb School. Each school hosts their own Dance Marathon fundraising event on campus, where students stand, dance and fundraise for hours in support of those at Children’s Hospital.
