Red Raiders Dance for a Great Cause

TTUHSC and Texas Tech students will host the third RaiderThon, a dance marathon with all proceeds benefitting Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 6 at the Student Union Building Ballroom on the TTU campus.

Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement founded in 1991 involving college and high school students at more than 150 schools across the country raising money for CMN.

RaiderThon will be an 8-hour event where students stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment. Last year, the first RaiderThon raised $24,500.

This year RaiderThon is teaming up with Kappa Sigma. Proceeds from its powder puff football game will be donated to RaiderThon.

Sandt said there are numerous ways to donate to the event. This year Text To Donate is set up for those who wish to give by texting DANCE to 27722 or by visiting the RaiderThon website at

Students who wish to register can visit the website. Registration is $15 per participant and includes a meal, snacks, live music, opportunities for prizes and giveaways and a T-shirt. The goal is for each student to raise $60.

Donations to CMN are used to provide charitable care, purchase life saving equipment and fund research and education programs that save and improve the lives of 17 million children each year.
