Glowathon 2014 - Staying Awake for Kid's Sake!  

April 26, 2014 at the Bruce M. Wright Memorial Conference Center in Watertown, NY.
Noon to Midnight

Are you ready to GLOW? Join the New Visions Class of 2014 in their effort to raise $20,000 for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) of Northern New York! Glowathon is this year’s new and improved Dance Marathon experience! The purpose of Dance Marathon events like Glowathon is to unite students for Children’s Miracle Network by standing for kids who can’t.

Register online for Glowathon 2014!

How it Works:
Glowathon is open to students in grades 7 – 12. All school districts are welcome!
All students who sign up must raise a minimum of $30 for CMN. Sign up here! (Coming Soon)
Students who “glow above and beyond” the fundraising minimum will be entered into a prize drawing once for each addition $25 raised above the $30 minimum!
Students can raise funds online using Donor Drive (see “Sign up here”) and/or they can collect cash and checks (payable to Children’s Miracle Network) and turn in to the CMN Office at Samaritan.

Glowathon is a 12-Hour Dance Marathon and students pledge to dance, stand, and stay awake for the duration of the event. There will be games, tournaments, and activities in addition to dancing. Lunch and dinner will be provided; in addition there will be a concession stand throughout the entire event so students can purchase snacks!

Peter Pan Birthday Club

The Peter Pan Birthday Club of Children's Miracle Network at Samaritan Medical Center is open to all children and is designed to foster and encourage philanthropy in children. Birthdays are a special time to celebrate and by joining the Peter Pan Birthday Club, your child has the opportunity to impact the life of a sick child. Club members ask birthday party guests to bring a monetary gift to Children's Miracle Network of NNY instead of a present. All of the gifts made through the Peter Pan Birthday Club help meet specific needs of children in Northern New York.

The Triathlon will held in August 2014. This race is in partnership with the Thousand Islands Young Leaders Organization (TIYLO) – a nonprofit organization working together for the betterment of communities in the Thousand Islands region and for personal development of young leaders.
