Texas THON is the largest student run philanthropy in the state of Texas, and is sponsored by the Division of Recreational Sports at The University of Texas at Austin. We raise awareness and funds for Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, a Children's Miracle Network hospital here in Austin. We are a part of a nationwide Dance Marathon movement which takes place at over 250 universities and high schools across the nation. Our year round fundraising efforts culminate in a 12- hour spring event where our Miracle Makers stand FOR THE KIDS. This year our event will take place on March 6th, 2016. Last year, we raised over $104,000 For The Kids, the first time a Dance Marathon in the state of Texas has reached six figures. In the past 4 years we have raised $215,133.58.
