OUR PURPOSE

Here at Naz-A-Thon, we are driven by a single goal: to raise awareness and funds for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

We work year-round organizing events and fundraisers, all leading up to our annual 12 hour dance marathon. We dance in support and memory of those who can't. We dance so that one day, they may be able to dance with us. We dance to create miracles and save lives. Most importantly, we dance 4 the Kids!
