Transform Today Event

Dance Marathon at the University of Florida (DM at UF) holds the Transform Today event every fall. This year, the event will begin on October 27 at 8 a.m and end on October 28 at 10:12 a.m.

“Every dollar raised during Transform Today will contribute to DM at UF’s 2021 total, which will directly benefit Shands Children’s Hospital. Funds raised by DM at UF are instrumental in providing research, education, equipment and programs that make Shands a leader in pediatric care,” according to a DM at UF press release. “The need for funds is more prevalent than ever due to COVID-19, and it is Our Time Now to fight harder than ever to make miracles for the children treated at Shands.”

At this event, UF students work to raise funds for the patients and families at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. The event lasts for 26.2 hours to reflect the length of DM at UF’s main event that will be held in April at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.
