Description

CometTHON is an organization that is part of Miracle Network Dance Marathon (MNDM), a nationwide movement of over 300 schools coming together to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals), a nationwide coalition of pediatric hospitals. We spend a year raising funds and awareness for Children's Health here in Dallas, volunteering with various organizations, and interacting with patient families, culminating in a 7-hour event where students stay on their feet through dancing, games, and entertainment. Why stay on your feet for that long? To quote the first CMN Hospitals Dance Marathon mission statement: “We dance for those who can’t.” This past year, we surpassed our fundraising goal by almost $7,000, raising $31,864.01! We are one generation fighting for the next. Join us as we do all that we can FTK--For The Kids!
