ASU students lead effort to raise money for Arizona children

ASU’s second annual Dance Marathon will raise money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The student-led event, which focuses on dancing for those who can't, is set to take place from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Feb. 22, and will help provide the best possible health care to children in Arizona by offsetting treatment costs for families.

As part of the Sun Devil community, you too can join in the fight to ensure all children in Arizona have the best health care. Need another reason to donate? Here are three reasons from the families and kids treated at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH):

1. Your donation will help support pet therapy dog programs and playrooms that made Annie’s painful experience easier and more comfortable. Annie was diagnosed with Spina Bifida before birth. Now a preschooler, she has come to love PCH and staff.

2. It’s more than a hospital. The colorful painted walls and attentive staff help kids like Ethan feel safe and comfortable during treatment. With a rare kidney disease called Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome, Ethan received a kidney transplant and considers PCH a home away from home.

3. Help fund the future of kids like Kyle. His family went to three different hospitals before finding the care they were looking for. Kyle was a newborn when he was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease that affects just 1 to 5 percent of births. With the support of PCH, the family is determined to overcome each challenge.
