MLHS Dance Marathon

Do YOU desperately need CAS/CS hours? 

Do you love to dance and jam out to AWESOME music? 

How about raising money for an AMAZING cause?


 If you said YES to any of the previous questions, we’ve got JUST the event for YOU!

Mira Loma High School presents its 9th annual Dance Marathon, a 6-hour fun-filled event including games, food, music, performances, a dance JAM, and much more. With MLDM, you have the chance to be part of something bigger, the chance to fundamentally change lives through service and philanthropy. All funds raised through our event go directly to the UC Davis Children’s Hospital to provide treatment for children in the Sacramento valley, to promote research, and to establish outreach programs for local communities to promote healthier lifestyles.

If you would like to volunteer at our event and receive CAS/CS hours, fill out THIS FORM:

Could there be a better way to spend your Friday than jamming out to your favorite music, meeting and making new friends, eating great food, playing thrilling games, watching talented performances, all while making the world a better place?

 We don’t think so.

Invite ALL of your friends and family and come on out and do it #FORTHEKIDS.
