Hi Class of 2016!

This week, I wanted to let you know about an incredible opportunity to serve your Norman community through the Campus Activities Council’s official philanthropy, Soonerthon.

Over 2800 people register every year to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network at OU’s official Dance Marathon. Last year, the event raised thousands of dollars For The Kids. This year, the event is on March 8th from 10am-10pm. Speaking from my own background, Soonerthon is an amazing, life-changing experience. Not only do you get to dance around all day, you get to interact with and celebrate the lives of “Miracle Children.” These children are living with or have recovered from debilitating diseases and inspire us as we dance for them.

If you are have participated in Soonerthon in the past, you may be aware that most participants sign up in teams. Signing up as an individual can be intimidating, since these teams are usually large campus organizations or Greek houses. We in Class Councils have decided to change that this year by adding a team for each graduating class. You will be able to sign up with one or two friends, and still feel like you are a part of a team. This will allow you to meet and bond with members of your class, and raise money while doing it!

Even though you may be seeing this the week of March 8th, you still have time to sign up! Just go to helpmakemiracles.org, click on dance marathons, then choose OU’s Soonerthon. After that, just remember to join the Class of 2016 team. I hope to see you all bright and early on March 8th!
