How To Prepare For Day-Of

Banner: Make a banner for your Miracle Kid! These will be hung around the room and can say anything like "___ Dances For Evie!" or "___ Loves UMDMPALOOZA" etc.

Gift Basket: These are meant to make your Miracle Kid feel special! They can be around $20, and you can look at the info sent to you about your miracle kid for ideas. A handwritten note is always great as well!

Fundraising & Registration: Registration day-of Dance Marathon will be $10, no exceptions, so get your team registered now! Reminder that every participant who raises $62 gets a free t-shirt, and please be sure to look at your team's Agreement to set a goal for fundraising. If your team wants help setting up a last-minute fundraiser, let us know!

Contact your Miracle Family! Not every Miracle Family is comfortable with being in contact with their team, but if you have received a parent's contact information, feel free to reach out or even set up a Zoom with your team and the family to get connected! We just ask that only the captain of the team is in contact with the Miracle Family.

What To Expect Day-Of

Arrival: 9:30am

Reveal: 9:00pm

When Should I Get Here?

We ask that team captains arrive with their team's banners at 9:30am for set-up. This is important so that the begining of our event runs smoothly.

How Long Should I Stay?

  • So that everyone get's the best experience possible, we encourage each participant to stay for at least 2 hours! As captains, your teams will take example from you.

  • Because Miracle Kids will be arrivingat different points throughout the day, it is asked that someone from your team is around all day so that you are able to meet your Miracle Kid and form a connection with them! We recommend creating a sign up sheet where team members can let you know what time they'll be stopping by.

  • And, of course, the most exciting part of the day is the reveal, so be sure to encourage your team to come back to the event at 9:00pm so they don't miss it!

Why Does This Matter?

  • A kid-sized ambulance

This year our money is going to a renovated NICU!
