Marathon for Miracles

Partake in this year’s UGA® Miracle annual Dance Marathon fundraising event February 24 through 25. The Dance Marathon is a weekend-long event that brings together the University of Georgia and the Athens community. Activities span throughout the night and include speakers, dancing and families sharing their stories. 

UGA® Miracle is the largest student-run philanthropy at the University of Georgia, raising over one million dollars each year for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, specifically the Scottish Rite’s Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit and the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center.
