20 Years of State A Thon

This year we are proud to celebrate the 20th anniversary of State A Thon. In the past 20 years State A Thon has raised over $1 million for Children's Miracle Network and Sanford's Castle of Care. And we are just getting started!

What is State A Thon?

State A Thon is a part of a nationwide movement called Dance Marathon. Over 300 campuses across the US work to raise money for Children's Miracle Network. All the money we raise goes to the Sanford Children's Castle of Care in Sioux Falls to support children of this area. We host small fundraisers year round, leading up to a big celebration on April 23-24, 2021. For the first year ever, State A Thon will be a 24 hour event. As a dancer, you will get to spend the whole day with a "miracle family" in a small group. We play fun games, like human foosball, relay races, lip sync battles, etc. We do some dancing, but no dancing skills are required. Dancers also have a very minimal commitment. We require each dancer to raise only $50 total, which gets you two free meals, snacks, a t-shirt, and access to the entire day. The more you raise,the more you get, as dancers receive incentives for hitting the next fundraising level. State A Thon is the extremely fun, rewarding and is the easiest way to give back to your local community. Dancing truly can save lives; Join our movement today!
