Mini Dance Marathon hosted by Spring HOSA was a HUGE Success!
In October, the Spring Valley High School HOSA Chapter, Columbia, SC hosted its very first Mini Dance Marathon in October in partnership with the University of South Carolina. This event raised money for the Children’s Miracle Network, with all proceeds going directly to the local Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital. Our HOSA chapter and Executive Board members worked to plan our main event, fundraise, secure event sponsors, and spread awareness. In preparation for the main event, we had a child life specialist speak to our entire chapter. In addition, our HOSA Executive Board participated in a “dance marathon retreat,” where they were able to understand the concept and planning that is required to host a successful dance marathon. Over 260 “heroes” (student participants) showed up for the main event. The night included food vendors, Zumba, guest dance performances, lip sync battles, line dancing, and presentations by “Miracle Families” (those that have been impacted by the Children’s Miracle Network). At the end of the night, we were pleasantly surprised that the grand total raised was $7,626! We would like to extend a special thank you to the HOSA chapter at Ridge View High School (SC) for supporting our Mini Dance Marathon. We would also like to thank our Spring Valley community and student organizations that participated or volunteered. Want to see what it was all about? Watch this video: https://goo.gl/13QmHg
