Since its inception, the Chicago Dance Marathon has raised more than $2 million for the patients and families of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Each year, hundreds of dedicated Lurie Children’s supporters join together on the dancefloor for 8 hours of dancing, gaming, entertainment and inspiring stories from our patient families.
This year, on February 23rd, the CDM held its 10th consecutive danceathon at the Chicago Marriott Downtown. GCG has participated for the last two years, both as fundraising dance teams and as volunteers. This year’s group assisted the event coordinators with dancer check-in, lunch set up and volunteer coordination.
