HootaThon is Temple University's Dance Marathon. A Dance Marathon is a student-run philanthropy event held on campus once a year, but the overall cause is a year long project. We lead fundraising events and awareness as well as activities with the children at CHOP all throughout the year. This leads up to our twelve hour event, where we stand on our feet for all those kids who can't. We dance for twelve hours to celebrate the lives we've saved and to remember the lives we've lost. It is a time for the families to have a day to celebrate the life of their kids and a time for their kids to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about the tests, hospital beds, or when they might be sick again.
It is our time to celebrate for everything we have done throughout the year, everything we've done to raise money for CHOP and everything we've done to come together as a university.
Dance Marathon's happen in over 170 high schools and colleges across the country. They raised over 50 million dollars in 2011 alone, and have made record-breaking numbers in money raised for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals around the nation.
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has been ranked one of the nation's best children's hospital in the country. Our money raised would be going to the Child Life department at CHOP. This would benefit for activities and crafts that the kids will do together. These activities help the children feel like they're at home while living in a hospital. It makes them feel like a kid when they're surrounded with the aroma that hospital's have.
