On March 8, HOSA will be holding their second dance marathon to support the Children’s Miracle Network. The marathon will be held in the commons from 6 to 10 p.m. Students and faculty members can buy tickets during lunch or at the event door.

“All the money made benefits others and that’s something to be excited about being apart of,” HOSA member Jordyn Inman said.

To prepare for this event, HOSA members meet with a representative from Saint Louis University who helps them organize catering, money and much more. The representative from SLU also introduces them to families who have been helped by the Children’s Miracle Network.

“I think it does do a lot of good especially when those families come in and tell their stories about how much it really does help so it feels really good to know that we are a part of that,” HOSA cabinet member Sarah Moore said.

This is the second dance marathon held and, according to Moore, HOSA hopes to continue the marathon in the future. Last year there were approximately 50 students who attended, this year they are hoping to double that.

“This year I wanted to take more of a leadership role in it and keep it going throughout the school because I think it can do a lot of good,” Moore said.

Tickets can still be bought at lunches today for $15 and at the door for $20.
