Dancing for Life

Last year, Emmanuel College Dance Marathon (ECDM) made a goal to raise $15,000 for Children’s Hospital Boston and danced past it, raising almost $18,500.

This year, ECDM has a higher ambition: raise $20,000. To do so, they are hosting several additional events besides the main marathon event on April 13. One of those is Dancing with the EC Stars on February 28.

Borrowing an idea from the popular ABC reality show of a similar name, Dancing with the EC Stars will feature

Emmanuel is one of the six Boston schools raising money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals through Dance Marathon. Although Emmanuel focuses on Children’s Hospital Boston by donating 100% of their funds to them, Dance Marathon is a student-run, nationwide effort to raise money for children’s hospitals. Last year alone, college dance marathons nationally raised over 6 million dollars for their local children’s hospitals.

Dancing with the EC Stars will take place on Thursday, February 28 at 7pm in the Auditorium.
