History of CHICAGO Dance Marathon

Since its inception in 2010, CHICAGO Dance Marathon has raised more than $2 million for the patients and families of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Each year, hundreds of dedicated Lurie Children’s supporters join us on the dancefloor for 8 hours of dancing, entertainment and inspiring stories from our patient families.

We hope you’ll dance or stand with us so that we can continue to make a life-saving difference for kids!
