The money raised supports Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in St. Louis: St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. Dance Marathon Honorary Chair and Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton leads faculty and staff in the “Dancellor.” The Wrightons donated $15 for every faculty and staff member who joined them on stage. Students danced for 12 hours straight to raise money for St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. This year’s grand total was $152,000.
