Make a Difference
The Stand is neither a dance nor a marathon; it is a celebration of life. We raise funds and awareness for three Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in the New York City area. The funds we raise go directly to the hospitals and fund things like therapy tools, operation rooms, comfort amenities, and state-of-the-art equipment to save the lives of children who may enter the doors of each hospital. The Stand hosts events throughout the year to raise money for the hospitals and connect young philanthropists alike. Our efforts culminate in our annual dance marathon, appropriately called The Stand, where we stand in honor of all the kids in our hospitals. We meet children and parents from the hospitals, treat our miracle kiddos to a day of fun, and celebrate the lives of children in New York City!
Whether you're a Dance Marathon alumni from your university or college or brand new to Dance Marathon, we invite you to join our family! The Stand is an amazing place to network, make a difference, and create friendships in the city. Joining a dedicated group of young professionals for an amazing cause is something that cannot be beat!
