Appalachian State's Dance Marathon is an annual fundraiser, started 14 years ago, that culminates in a 15-hour dance party in February! All the money raised benefits children in the High Country through two local non-profits; Western Youth Network (WYN) and Parent to Parent Family Support Network. Last year, Dance Marathon at Appalachian rasied an incredible $35,000 for our two amazing non-profits!
Our Mission is to encourage Appalachian students to look beyond themselves and our campus community and advocate for the present and future wellbeing of kids and families in the High Country of Western North Carolina.
Each student participant is asked to raise $150 ($10 for every hour of the event) through various fundraising activities throughout the year, which will all lead up to the day of the event when students will dance for 15 hours to celebrate the lives of children!
We need YOU and the help of ALL students across campus to make Dance Marathon a continued success!
