Zonathon is The University of Arizona’s Dance Marathon!
It is a student run organization that works with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® to support children at the Tucson Medical Center. Dance Marathons have become a tradition at universities across the country and help promote campus unity while giving back to the community.
Here’s how it works:
After registering individually or as a team, dancers raise funds to support families and their children in our local community. The event itself is a 12 hour-long party to stand for those who can’t, celebrate the money raised, and spread awareness!
Why stay on your feet for that long?
To quote the first Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Dance Marathon’s mission statement: “We dance for those who can’t.” It is this solidarity to – and connection with – the cause that makes Dance Marathon an event unlike any other.”
