What is RhodyTHON?
RhodyTHON is a student run, Miracle Network Dance Marathon at the University of Rhode Island that raises money for the children being treated at Hasbro's Children Hospital in Providence, RI. Hasbro Children's Hospital is one of the many hospitals across the U.S. that is a part of The Children's Miracle Network. Rhodython raises money throughout the year for Hasbro Children's Hospital, but our main event is our spring semester dance marathon. This event includes overnight dancing, games, and meeting the Miracle Kids!
Our first marathon was in 2018, where we raised $147,000 and broke The Children's Miracle Network record of becoming the largest first-year dance marathon in history! Since then, the Rhodython team works year round to ensure every future dance marathon is successful and fun!
Students from every inch of campus participate in fundraising and the overnight dance marathon. Our past participants have included every greek chapter, and various sports teams and student organizations. Teams will register and create a donor drive where all of their fundraising efforts will go.
