Calling all Panthers! Roarthon returns to campus on Saturday, April 1st, 2023, beginning at noon in the Wellness & Recreation Center!

Roarthon, FIU’s Dance Marathon, is a year-long fundraising campaign ending in a 12-hour celebration. All funds raised benefit the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals program at Miami Children's Hospital Foundation, the fundraising arm of Nicklaus Children's Hospital. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds and awareness for 170 children's hospitals throughout North America. Since 1985, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital has been the only Children's Miracle Network Hospital in South Florida.

Each year, more than 300 students participate in the 12-hour fundraiser, which takes a committee of more than 50 students a year to plan and activate. Join us as we unite to change kids’ health and change the future by raising critical funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. FIU is passionate about making a difference for kids and families in our local communities.
