Child Health Day

Child Health Day is here and RebelTHON is ready to grow alongside Children's of Mississippi. 

On October 7th, Miracle Network Dance Marathon will be celebrating Child Health Day and advocating for the need for donations to provide the best care for sick and injured kids treated at local children’s hospitals.

Students participating in their school’s Dance Marathon programs throughout the nation are encouraged to fundraise on Child Health Day by asking family and friends for donations to show their commitment to “Change kids’ health” and “change the future.”

While helping sick and injured kids is the primary reward for our fundraising efforts, CMN Hospitals is hosting a contest to reward one fundraiser for their hard work on Child Health Day!

Today from 10-3pm in the Union Plaza you will have the opportunity to leave your mark on the new expansion of Children's of Mississippi. Come by the tables outside and show us your Donor Drive page to show that you are registered and recieve a blank canvas for Project SNAP. You will use this canvas to design your own piece of art for the kids and it will be placed in the hospital's new expansion in one giant mural that is made up of thousands of Children's of Mississippi supporters. Every participant is coming together tomorrow to particpate and leave their permanant mark on Children's of Mississippi. 

RebelTHON is also raising awareness for the 410 children that are treated in the hospital and surrounding clinics statewide every single day. We are pushing to register 410 participants for RebelTHON 2020 by the end of the day to represent those children being treated. We would encourage you to use the code "CHD2020” to register today for $10, which is the lowest registration fee of the year. We will be placing a flag for each registrant tomorrow to fill the letters "CHD" for Child Health Day, which will show our progress throughout the day. Please feel free to email rebelthon@go.olemiss.edu with any questions and thank you for taking a step to be a part of RebelTHON 2020!
