UIW to host Cardinal Dance Marathon; Dancing for kids who can’t

San Antonio – Join UIW’s Mission & Ministry, from 4 p.m. to midnight, Saturday, Feb. 1, for the 2014 Cardinal Dance Marathon (CDM) and dance for kids who can’t.  This unique and exciting tradition is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to serve the families of the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, a member of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

The Cardinal Dance Marathon is an eight- hour Dance Marathon hosted by UIW Mission & Ministry to raise money and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Students will remain on their feet for the entirety of the event in solidarity with nurses who work long shifts and in honor of those children who can’t.

On February 1, 2014, our day filled with dancing, games, performances, and touching moments as we hear from some of our Miracle Families.
