Inaugural Dance Marathon 5K Raises $2000+
October 02, 2017
Wheelock's Dance Marathon Committee hosted its first-ever 5K Run last month, raising $2,385 to benefit the kids at Boston Children's Hospital. The total raised exceeded the group's $2,000 fundraising goal.
The Dance Marathon Committee's mission is to dance #ForTheKids. The group works collaboratively to plan events and raise funds, culminating in a 10-hour Dance Marathon where they celebrate with children and families, and finally donate they year's total proceeds to Boston Children's Hospital, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.
For its inaugural 5K Run, the committee lined up sponsorships from Whole Foods and Giffords Ice Cream. Wheelock's student a cappella group, the Grace Notes, performed the national anthem to start the event.
