Dance Marathon isn't just about the how much money is raised or how long we dance, it is about the families of CMN. In the end, we are dancing for the families and FTK! During the year leading up to the Big Event, we plan many activities and get together with the families. This allows us to get to know all the families on a personal level, so we can plan an event that is special to them. We have the privilege to hear their stories and learn about the different conditions each of the kids have been affected by. This makes our hard work that much more rewarding! 


At St. Ambrose we are very lucky to have such amazing Miracle Families.  Though all the stories, diagnoses, and families are different; they are equally an important part of our Dance Marathon Family. Here at SAU, we have a special place in our hearts for some very special kiddos. These kiddos are kiddos that fought very hard, but are now always Dancing in Our Hearts. We remember Our Dancing in Our Heart Kiddos in best way we can, by trying to make sure that someday there will be no more Dancing in Our Heart Kiddos.


Dance Marathon is a yearlong celebration of life to provide emotional and financial support for the families treated at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City, our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Dance Marathon is for the kids, and at St. Ambrose, we 'BEElieve in the Kids'.
