At HuskerThon, hundreds of UNL students join together to engage in various acts of entertainment, raise money for the Children’s Hospital, interact with current/former patients from Children’s Hospital, and dance for those who can’t.

University of Nebraska Dance Marathon (UNDM) is a student-run organization that raises funds and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Our year-long efforts culminate with a multi-hour event: HuskerThon.

What is Dance Marathon?
Dance Marathon is a philanthropic student organization that supports Children’s health and desires that no Nebraska family has to fight their child’s pediatric illness or injury alone. We educate the public about children’s health and the financial need of our local Nebraska Children’s Hospital by facilitating programming and fundraising events and activities on campus and in the community. Money that is raised is then donated to Nebraska Children’s Hospital so they can continue to conduct research, purchase pediatric medical equipment, and provide critical treatments and charitable care for hundreds of Nebraska kids each year.

Check-In for event will start around 9am.
