Blazerathon

Blazerathon Together with VSU Organizations we raise money for the pediatric patients at UF Health Shands Children's Hospital.
VSU Dance Marathon is a student run philanthropy dedicated to supporting pediatric patients treated at Shands Hospital for Children. Shands Hospital for Children is one of the leading referral centers, treating kids across Florida, the United States, and as far away as Africa. 100% of the funds raised throughout the year and at Blazer-A-Thon will benefit life-saving medical equipment and pediatric research. VSU Dance Marathon is a year-round organization that plans, promotes, and produces Blazer-A-Thon each year. This year it's scheduled for November 15, 2014 from 10:00AM-10:00PM. VSU Dance Marathon began in 2001, reaching more than $20,000 in donations in its first year. However, the event did not continue and the event was not held again until 2010 where over $9,000 was raised. In 2012 the organization doubled their total raising $23,329.04 for Shands Hospital for Children. In 2013 Blazer-A-Thon beat their total once again raising $30,304.61 for Shands Hospital for Children and Children's Miracle Network. In 2014, Dance Marathon plans to continue to grow while raising funds and awareness for CMNH!

The "Dance Marathon" event has been held at colleges and universities throughout the country benefiting 170 local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1973. Blazer-A-Thon is a 12-hour “standing” event held on VSU's campus to raise monetary donations for UF Health Shands Children's Hospital

It helps kids forget what they are going through. It's a joyful environment." – Jesus Ramos, Blazerathon at Valdosta State University Family Relations Chair

General information

How can I get involved with VSU Dance Marathon? You can get involved as a Dancer, Committee Member, Cash Donator, and/or a Sponsor (of a dancer, of gifts, and/or of in-kind donations). -Dancers: We need individuals who are willing to sacrifice one Saturday on their feet in order to raise awareness and funds to help combat childhood illness. Anyone can register to be a dancer... you do NOT have to be a “dancer”, as we not only dance, but play games, enjoy some great food, listen to an awesome DJ, and hear the miracle stories of families who were touched by Children’s Miracle Network on a personal level. -Committees: Email us for open positions or visit the Exec Board page on the website for more information. -Cash Donations: We could not do what we do without the support of the community around us. It is because of those who give, whatever the amount, that enable us to hold such an event and then be able to turn around give the proceeds to help further the work that Shands is doing for childhood illnesses. -Sponsors: Each of our dancers is required to raise a certain amount of funds in order to participate in the event. A great way to help show support and become involved is to sponsor a dancer. -Gifts: Businesses can choose from different donation levels to support VSU Dance Marathon. For our donors, we offer various levels of exposure and a long list of benefits. -In-kind: Along with cash donations, VSU Dance Marathon depends in large part on in-kind gifts, in order to run an exciting, compelling and successful event. These gifts range from merchandise and specialized services given as incentives for dancers, to the food and drinks distributed to keep the hundreds of dancers and families energized for 15 hours. These donations are based on an estimated retail value and, in return, are given the same level of recognition as cash donations.
