Boise State students dance for the kids at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital
Starting at 3 p.m. on Friday, April 5, Boise State University students will dance for 17 hours for those who can’t -- the kids being treated at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. The event will conclude at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 6.
“This event is unique because it brings people from campus and the community together to raise awareness. During the Marathon, dancers are challenged mentally and physically, gaining perspective of the even greater challenges and obstacles facing the children we support,” says Boise State University Dance Marathon President Stephanie Pyles. Every hour has a different theme with activities, including inflatable obstacle courses, live performances, crafts, and competitions between the student teams.
Boise State University Dance Marathon will be open to the public during spectator hours on Friday night between 8 and 10 p.m. The event will take place at the Boise State Recreation Center at 1515 University Drive.
Dance Marathon was founded in 1991 and currently involves over 170 high schools and colleges across the country. The fundraising is driven by pledges, and the community gets involved through donations of food, activities, or monetary support.
All of the funds raised will stay local and benefit the kids treated at St. Luke's Children's Hospital. To learn more or to make a donation, visit the BSU Dance Marathon Facebook page at facebook.com/BSUDM and the Donor Drive page at http://bit.ly/ZuBntB.
