Trojan Dance Marathon is a student-run philanthropy at the University of Southern California benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Our efforts culminate in a 9-hour dance marathon, celebrating the strength of the children and families whose lives have been impacted by pediatric illness. USC students, members of the community, and Miracle Families make this event possible. Together, let’s make miracles happen!
