About BGSU Dance Marathon
In 1995, a group of BGSU students began Dance Marathon wit the hopes of changing the lives of children, never realizing the exciting tradition they were about to establish. The students of BGSU's Dance Marathon, in association with Mercy Children's Hospital of Toledo and the Children's Miracle Network are continuing to bring miracles to children in need in Northwest, Ohio. Dance Marathon provides finds that go toward research, treatment, education, and purchase or essential equipment for the Mercy Children's Hospital's Child Life Center. BGSU's Dance Marathon has become the largest student run philanthropy in the state of Ohio with over 2,500 student volunteers participating and one of the largest contributors to Mercy Children's Hospital each year.
