What are DanceBlue Mini Marathons?

DanceBlue Mini Marathons are events hosted by a school or community group that supports DanceBlue’s mission through fundraising and community engagement. A typical “Mini” consists of a 2-6 hour event with programming including games, performances, and plenty of dancing, just like our Marathon! Through our robust partnership with over 40 schools across the Commonwealth, DanceBlue Mini Marathons has raised millions of dollars and showcased Jarrett’s joy for over 15 years.

Why Participate in DanceBlue Mini Marathons?

Participating in a DanceBlue Mini Marathon not only provides students with a chance to make a real difference in the lives of children facing cancer but also offers a unique and rewarding experience for everyone involved. By taking part in this philanthropic endeavor, your school can:

  • Build a sense of community and camaraderie as students and staff unite for a shared cause.
  • Instill the value of empathy and compassion in students as they witness the impact of their fundraising efforts.
  • Make a positive impact on the lives of countless children and families battling cancer, supporting critical research and care at the DanceBlue Clinic.
  • Empower students to lead and organize a charitable event, fostering leadership skills and teamwork. (Internship and Community Service opportunities available for any students interested in organizing/leading a mini marathon.)
