Mini Dance Marathon Hosted By club hOpe


Maquoketa High School’s “club hope” has decided team up with Osterhaus Pharmacy to host a “mini” dance marathon to raise money for the University of Iowa’s Dance Marathon which has pledged a $5 million donation to the Iowa City Children’s Hospital over the next three years for the new Children’s Hospital being build.

club hOpe is a Youth-In-Action Group, which is a non-profit organization Free the Children. club hOpe has decided to follow in the example of the University of Iowa Dance Marathon and host its second “mini” marathon. The event is going to be held Saturday, December 15th at Maquoketa High School. The doors will open at 5:30 PM and the activities will go from 6 PM to 12 AM. It will cost $5 to get in the door, and you will then be considered a “spirit dancer”. As a spirit dancer, you are free to enter the West Gym to take part in dancing and listening to the stories of Iowa City Children’s Hospital patients and families, enjoy the free-will donation spaghetti supper, make the current Iowa City Children’s Hospital patients crafts, and view the Walk to Remember displays made by patients and families. All proceeds collected at this event will go towards the University of Iowa Dance Marathon’s pledge of $5 million.

It will definitely be a night full of fun and dancing for a great cause! club hOpe highly encourages any and all ages of people to come and join them! If any questions regarding the event, please email Mindy Orris at [email protected] for more information.
