Mini Dance Marathon hosted by Spring



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.
