Florida Hold 1K Run/Walk and Raises $4,700 for Children’s Miracle Network

In late February, the Beta Zeta Chapter at the University of Florida held their 5th Annual 1K benefitting Dance Marathon. The fun event was not only enjoyable, but it raised awareness and more than $4,700 for the Children’s Miracle Network.

“Brothers, sorority women, and other guests came together, dressed up, and enjoyed good company all while raising money and awareness for a good cause,” Number I  Nolan Brown ’18 said in the chapter’s alumni e-newsletter. “Not to mention, we all enjoyed some good food at the Rowdy Reptile Bar and Grill!”

While the event looked different than years past, members of the chapter participated in the 27th Annual Dance Marathon at the O’Connell Center which consists of two 13.1-hour shifts on April 10th and 11th.

Dance Marathon at the University of Florida is one piece of a larger international movement of students fighting for a future without childhood illness. Hundreds of Dance Marathon programs throughout North America raise funds and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital receives support from three Dance Marathon programs in the region, allowing it to make more miracles each and every day.
