LakerThon Hits 100K For the Kids!

On March 30, Grand Valley State University (GVSU) hosted their 3rd annual LakerThon Dance Marathon. The 12 hour event supports their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.

A group of 32 students work throughout the year to plan and fundraise. As a result, over 270 GVSU students registered and raised $50,814.50! Even more, after three years of fundraising, LakerThon has raised over $100,000!

Furthermore, this year, the GVSU’s Office of Student Life awarded the LakerThon Committee with three awards:

  • Outstanding Collaboration in Programming Award
  • Excellent Student Organization Award
  • Care for Community Award

Our hospital is incredibly grateful for the support from Grand Valley State University Dance Marathon!  Above all, we are excited to watch this organization continue to grow.
