Dance Marathon


Mission Statement

TAMUK Dance Marathon strives to raise funds and provide emotional support and awareness for pediatric patients and families treated at Driscoll Children's Hospital by working with Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization, that raises funds and awareness for more than 170 pediatric hospitals in North America. 100% of the funds raised through this event stay local to support local children. 

General Information

Dance Marathon was founded at TAMUK on March 30th, 2017, by a group of Fraternity and Sorority members that wanted to impact their local community in a big way.
    • Dance Marathon raised a little over $5,000 in its first year!
    • In its second year, Fraternity and Sorority members wanted to get the campus more engaged and made this a campus-wide effort. Other organizations such as Unity, TAMUK Javelina Sapphires, Pep Talk, and others joined our Fraternity and Sorority members in our mission to raise funds for Corpus Christi Driscoll Children's Hospital!
    • In its second year, students set their goal for $10,000. They exceeded their goal and raised $11,350.79!
    • In its third year, students set their goal for $12,500. They exceeded their goal and raised $17, 267.37!
    • In its fourth year, our Dance Marathon event faced an unprecedented challenge due to COVID-19. Our in-person event was canceled, however, our students continued to fundraise virtually and raised a total of $7,386.35.
