UA Miracle is the largest student-led philanthropic organization at the University of Alabama located in the Center for Service and Leadership. We work year round to advocate and raise funds for Children’s of Alabama located in Birmingham as part of the National Dance Marathon Network for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
In 2011, a small group of passionate University of Alabama students saw the potential on the UA campus to make a big impact in our community through the national Dance Marathon program and raised $14,952.18. Over 13 years later, UA Miracle has raised over $2.5 MILLION dollars and welcomed 88 Miracle Families to UA’s campus. UA Miracle is a part of the Miracle Network Dance Marathon movement present on over 400 campuses across the nation. We are so excited to kick off another year of making miracles and hope you will join us!
UA Miracle is entirely student-run, and is proud to have become a tradition on campus and in the community. These students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and social skills while raising funds in a variety of ways and interacting with children’s hospital patients and families. The year culminates with a 12 hour long event where the students stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment in order to celebrate the total amount raised that year.
University of Alabama students can participate in UA Miracle in multiple ways. Two immediate ways to become involved is by applying for our our Next Gen Leadership Program or by becoming a Miracle Maker:
