Help raise money at Lakerthon

On March 25 Miracle Network Dance Marathon will be hosting Lakerthon. This organization is a nationwide marathon that raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the United States.

Lakerthon directly raises money for the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids. All proceeds go to the Child Life Program, which helps to provide school teachers, prizes, iPads, coping toys, therapy dogs and more for the kids during their hospital stay.

Lakerthon lasts for six hours and does count as volunteer hours if students are looking to get more. The event will be held in the Grand River Room in the Kirkhof Center.

At this event volunteers will hear from the families they’ve helped at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. They’ll also learn line dances, make crafts, play games, eat free food and celebrate the money they’ve raised. Attendees will also be given a free shirt.

The event starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m. In order to attend RSVP via text, text “GVSUDM2023” to 51555 for the registration link.
