Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
American Univeristy's EagleTHON is proud to be a part of a large network of over 300 colleges in the United States and Canada fundraising for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Miracle Network Dance Marathons raise money for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. We raise money for our local hospital, Children's National in D.C. In 2018, over $43 million was raised for the kids. We are lucky to be a part of a strong movement of college students fighting for the next generation.
Our Dance Marathon
Each spring, we hold a 12-hour Dance Marathon on campus, full of dancing, games, and performances. Past activities included yoga, zumba, and a performance from On A Sensual Note. Miracle Kids and their families also visit which makes the event so much more special. They share their inspiring stories, form connections with the participants, and even put on some performances. In 2019, we raised $32,617.84 all for the kids.
Throughout the Year
Before our event, we host fundraising and registration events. In the past, we organized events on the Quad, pancake nights, and other events. Be on the look out for awesome events coming this 2019-2020 school year!
