Our Purpose

Here at Auburn University we believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with our fellow men and women, mutual helpfulness, and happiness for all. We stand for those who feel like they are alone, we support those that continue to fight, despite all odds, and we dance for those that continue to believe in hope. We hope YOU remember why you dance for these kids and can’t wait to see you at Main Event!

Our Mission

Auburn University Miracle Network Dance Marathon engages the campus and community in raising funds and generating awareness for the Children’s Hospital at Midtown Medical Center of Columbus Regional Health, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Every year we strive to create a better future for our kids. Every dollar that we raise means so much to those that fight every day. Everything we do is For The Kids.
