IonaTHON is part of the national dance marathon movement to raise funds for Children's Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals.

Organized by students, IonaTHON brings together the entire community for a six-hour dance marathon to benefit our local CMN hospital, the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, N.Y. Funds from IonaTHON support children who are undergoing open-heart surgery, brain surgery, trauma and burn care, cancer treatments and other advanced services at the hospital.

An annual, much-anticipated event on campus, IonaTHON raised more than $16,000 in 2020 for the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital!
