Home Newsroom VIDEO: BHS Dance Marathon Raises $14.4K for Miracle Network Families at Lurie Children’s Hospital

A night of serious dancing pays off for Barrington High School students who surpassed their $10,000 fundraising goal by raising nearly $14,400 during their Miracle Network Dance Marathon Saturday. The money raised will support young patients fighting pediatric illness and their families at Chicago’s Lurie Children’s Hospital.

About 200 students came out to Saturday’s Dance Marathon, which was organized by a group of about 30 volunteers led by Sophomore Kara Ingram. Kara says she was almost in tears when she learned how much they raised. “It’s so amazing to see how the little things add up into such an amazing finale!”

365Barrington reporter, Sean Dolan has been hard at work producing videos to spread the word about this year’s BHS Dance Marathon. In addition to interviewing some of the families who benefit, Sean brought his camera out onto the dance floor to share this celebratory minute.

The BHS Dance Marathon included performances by local High School Band Pulsebeat and Barrington High School’s Men’s Acappella X. Along with performances and dancing, students heard inspiring stories of patients at Lurie Children’s Hospital. “It really helps put a face to who we are raising money for,” says BHS sophomore Isaac Cheek.

To put it all in perspective, Sean Dolan produced this video showing the impact these Dance Marathons have on Lurie patients and their families.

Dance Marathons have been very popular at universities nationwide for years, but BHS was one of the first to bring the party to the high school level.  Throughout the school year the Barrington Dance Marathon Group has held fundraisers in and outside of school all leading up to their dance on March 5th.

The Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a movement of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for more than 170 pediatric hospitals.
