Children’s Miracle Network KC Heartland is proud to work with various partners to coordinate fundraising programs that benefit kids at KU Medical Center.
The Dance Marathon program is based in universities and high schools around the country. It helps students develop their leadership skills while planning large-scale fundraising events in honor of CMN miracle families. These events are some of the most anticipated for our families. They can run anywhere from 4-36 hours in length and are truly a celebration of our miracle families and all they have been through.
In addition to the KU Dance Marathon in Lawrence, we are looking forward to engaging additional high schools and colleges in the future.
Extra Life is a 24-hour virtual gaming marathon that takes in November. It engages gamers of all ages year-round in a community who want to give back while doing what they love most: playing games. Participants sign up at www.extra-life.org, fundraise on their own personalized page and plan their own game day. They can play any and all games they wish and get together with friends or do it alone. Each person can make it what they want it to be - it is completely customizable!
