BadgerThon is a philanthropic student organization at the University of Wisconsin – Madison that benefits the American Family Children’s Hospital (AFCH). Throughout the year, BadgerThon hosts events to raise awareness and funds for the cause. The progress from each year is celebrated and presented
to AFCH at the final event of the year, the BadgerThon Dance Marathon. This is a 15-hour event during which participants stay standing in order to show their support for the patients and families putting up a fight at AFCH and to remember those children who are now dancing in our hearts.
During the 15-hour marathon, we always strive to keep the patients we serve in mind. Some patient families will even be in attendance to tell their stories! We hope that all of you and your friends decide to join us in the 2016 BadgerThon Dance Marathon.
