We Stand For Those Who Can't

HighlanderThon is an annual high-energy 12 hour dance marathon hosted at NJIT to help benefit the kids at the Children's Specialized Hospital, as a member of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Registration for the event is free, but, similar to fundraising walks, each participant is required to raise a minimum of $62 on their personal fundraising page in a year-long effort to receive sponsored donations by friends and family. The $62 fundraising goal represents the 62 children who are admitted into a Children's Miracle Network Hospital every minute. We provide you with all the resources you'll need to help you reach your fundraising goal.
