But I can’t Dance!!

Not a problem at all! Not everyone at HighlanderThon will have the best moves. Remember that we don't care how you dance, it's all about why you dance - For The Kids! But, there's SO MUCH MORE to the night than just dancing. We have lots of games and live performances going on throughout the night and you'll get to hear stories from our Miracle Families and meet them too! You will also be assisted by our Spirit Captains, who will be helping everyone learn the official HighlanderThon Morale Dance throughout the night. You don’t need to dance to have fun at HighlanderThon!

What is HighlanderThon?

HighlanderThon is a year long, entirely student-run, fundraiser hosted at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. As an organization, we host events throughout the year in order to raise money for the kids at Children’s Specialized Hospital in support of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. We end the year with an 12-hour Dance Marathon on April 2nd to celebrate all the fundraising efforts of our participants.
