We are so proud of our sisters who participated in MizzouThon this weekend. With the help of family, friends, donors and sponsors, our campus raised $201,322.68! This money will go to the University of Missouri Children’s Hospital and help 20 amazing kids.
MizzouThon is a 365-day organization, and Main Event is a one-day celebration of the Miracle Kids. At the event, participants dance for 13.1 hours. They also learned about the different challenges Miracle Kids face, painted banners for the kids and enjoyed lots of food to keep them fueled.
We had sisters participate on the leadership team as well. Sister AnnMarie Metzendorf worked on the recruitment team, flyering, sponsoring, and hosting recruitment events to get people involved.
“The best part of working with MizzouThon is definitely getting to know our 20 miracle kids,” Sister AnnMarie said. “These kids are such inspirations and are the heart and soul of MizzouThon. It amazes me how they are so happy and optimistic all the time.”
Our sisters danced on Team Will. Will is a 3-year-old with partial agenesis of the corpus collosum, meaning that about 1/3 of the corpus collosum portion of his brain did not develop.
MizzouThon has pledged $1 million over the next five years to fund the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
