ECDM - For the Kids!

My favorite club is definitely Emmanuel College Dance Marathon!! Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! We’re very fortunate that our local children’s hospital is right in our backyard @ Boston Children’s Hospital. We fundraise from September to March, and then it culminates at a 12-hour event from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m.! All night we’re on our feet dancing and playing different games. It is super fun! In the morning, patients and families treated at Children’s come in and tell us how our fundraising has impacted them. Even as a first-year you can get super involved. Last year, as a first-year, I was a color team leader, and I had a blast!!
