St. Thomas Aquinas High School Dance Marathon is one of more than 300 Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs fundraising for local children’s hospitals. Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a movement uniting college, university, and high school students across North America. The collective efforts of students have raised nearly $180 million since 1991 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a nonprofit organization that raises funds and awareness for 170 pediatric hospitals in the U.S. and Canada.

The STA Mini Marathon, held April 20th in the STA Gym was made possible through a team of Junior and Senior National Honor Society members dedicated to the health, well-being, and continued care of children in our community!

Our leadership team dedicated countless of hours to this event and together with the help of dancers and donors conducted a phenomenal inaugural Dance Marathon!

STA Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors revealed and celebrated the year’s fundraising total, participated in games and dancing, enjoyed student-led entertainment, and heard from Alum involved in the medical field and community outreach!
