USD's Dakotathon Benefits Children's Miracle Network

USD's Dakotathon Benefits Children's Miracle Network

Students in Vermillion today kicked off their shoes for a 24-hour dance marathon, benefiting the Children's Miracle Network.

The event started at 9 a.m. Students and families connected to CMN took part in dancing and other fun events at various locations around Vermillion, including the high school and the DakotaDome. The event gives the students at USD an opportunity to see the faces of the children that are helped by the Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls.

“It's a day about them. They know that everyone who's here is on their side and I think that's really powerful. I think that's what comes out the most, maybe not in words in the expressions of gratitude and the fun and the smiles and hugs. The smiles and hugs, those are way that you know you're doing alright,” Activities Director Nathan Hofer said.

This is the 17th year of the Dakotathon. Last year the event raised over $50,000.
