UNO Dance Marathon Raises More than $60,000 For The Kids

Congratulations to the UNO Dance Marathon students and supporters who raised $60,311.70 over the past year for Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

The funds they raised this year will benefit Children’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the new Hubbard Center for Children. Funds will support an isolation (negative air flow) patient room, two nurse input stations and a sub team center in the new NICU.

Since 2017, UNO Dance Marathon has raised more than $276,000 to help local children through the CMN Hospitals partnership.

It has been encouraging and heartwarming to see the 2021 team come together online to prepare for the April event and build an awesome virtual DM community by including the families in activities and engaging participants with drive-thru events.

Special thanks to UNO staff advisor Bill Pickett for leading the team and initiating the program at UNO as well as Alex Dukart, executive director of the student planning committee.
