After raising $808K the year prior, Soonerthon experienced nearly 25% growth. With a focus on education of the cause and dancer communication, Soonerthon brought to life their theme of “celebration” this year!

Over 3,000 students were registered for this monumental event and were a part of the outstanding year-round efforts, which included Soonerthon’s fundraising push day which raised $123K within 24 hours, as well as their activation on Child Health Day welcoming over 800 participants to their movement!

Twenty years and over $1 million reasons to dance. Over the past 20 years, University of South Carolina has worked tirelessly to raise funds for Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, their local CMN Hospital. After breaking over $703,000 last year, the aimed to do something bold–they were committed to raising one million.

Before the event even started, the South Carolina State Legislature honored USC Dance Marathon for 20 years of fundraising for Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital in Columbia, South Carolina.

The focus this year was The Power of One. In every endeavor, they wanted to show that when ONE campus comes together for ONE common cause, they can make ONE very big impact on their communities. This resulted in blowing their one million dollar goal out of the water. This showed the power of even one individual spending their Saturday on their feet for 14 hours can result in an everlasting impact.
