Dance Marathon is a year-long fundraiser for the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital that culminates with a 24-hour dance-a-thon March 26–27, 2021.
Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, provides exceptional and lifesaving medical care to infants, children and adolescents. By supporting the hospital through fundraisers and awareness-building events throughout the year, we help it provide crucial programs and services that directly impact the children and families it serves.
Thank you to all those who participated in, donated to and supported Dance Marathon 2020! Together we raised a record-shattering $370,671.21 for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. In the past 21 years, Dance Marathon has raised over $3 million for the kids!
