Who We Are
HootaThon is Temple University’s Dance Marathon through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®. We are raising money and awareness for the Child Life Department at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Our goal is for every kid at CHOP to be cured of their sickness and to have the childhood they all deserve.
HootaThon is a student organization that allows students to understand the value of service while working throughout the year to raise money for The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, with the ultimate goal of allowing kids to be kids. HootaThon hopes to unite students, faculty, staff and the community as a whole for one great cause.
In November of 2013, the very first HootaThon took place from 7am-7pm in Mitten Hall at Temple University. After twelve hours of standing and continous fun, Temple students raised over $60,000; the highest earning first-year Dance Marathon in the North East! We hope to beat our total from last year this coming November for HootaThon 2014! If you’re interested in joining us, please visit the “Get Involved” Tab at the top.
